Juno and the Paycock by Sean O’Casey runs Friday January 18, 2019 through Sunday February 17, 2019.
Juno and the Paycock is a play set among the Dublin poor in 1919. Through humor and tragedy, the humanity of O’Casey’s characters is presented struggling for survival and nearly destroyed by the occupation of the British army. Following this, Ireland is slammed with a civil war. Juno’s great efforts to keep her family sane during these ongoing miseries raises her spirit to the heroic.
California Stage presents John O’Keefe’s new play, “Times Like These,” October 19th through November 18th.
California Stage will present playwright John O’Keefe’s new play, Times Like These, at the California Stage in the R25 Arts Complex, 25th & R St.
The play takes place in Hitler’s Berlin between 1934 and 1938. It is a play about Meta Wolff, Germany’s most famous actress, who is banned from the stage because she is a Jew. She attacks the only way she can: through her actor-husband, Oskar Weiss, whom she directs behind the scenes in a production of “Hamlet” to boldly satirize the Nazi regime.
It stars Gary Wright (AEA) and Lois Masten-Ewing, and is directed by Richard Winters.
The production plays Fridays & Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 2PM, October 19 to November 18, 2018. Tickets are $15-20.
