Now Playing This Month
 "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" 
Jan 11- Jan 27
 "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike", by Christopher Durang. Directed by Erin Davison. Paper Wing Main Stage
 
The story revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house. Some of the show's elements were derived from works of Anton Chekhov, including several character names, the play's setting in a cherry orchard, and the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home.

January 21. 27. 28 - ART  by Yasmina Reza, Directed by Peter DeBono

The comedy, which raises questions about art and friendship, concerns three long-time friends, Serge, Marc, and Yvan. Serge, indulging his penchant for modern art, buys a large, expensive, completely white painting. Marc is horrified, and their relationship suffers considerable strain as a result of their differing opinions about what constitutes "art". Yvan, caught in the middle of the conflict, tries to please and mollify both of them.

Performances:

Sundays, January 21 and 28 at the Monterey Museum of Art
Saturday, January 27 at the National Steinbeck Center.

 "Fun Home" 
Feb 8 - Mar 4 

  "Fun Home"  a musical adapted by Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori from Alison Bechdel's 2006 graphic memoir. Pacific Repertory Theatre
 
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
