An Interview with Lady Di"
Oct 25, & Nov 7
"An Interview with Lady Di" Staged Reading By Carol Marquart

Diana, Princess of Wales, is at a turning point in her life.
Not yet officially separated from her husband, Prince
Charles, Diana has invited “downmarket” tabloid writer,
Jayne Morgan, to Kensington Palace for what she calls, “a
girlie talk.” They gossip. They share a few off-colored
jokes. Diana is everything Jayne imagined her to be:
charming, down-to-earth, glamorous and witty. Then things
get serious. At the end of the interview comes an unexpected
revelation.

Coriolanus
​Oct 18 - Nov 4

 Coriolanus
by William Shakespeare,  Circle Theatre,  Directed by Ken Kelleher
 
PacRep continues its exploration of Shakespeare’s Roman plays with a new and relevant adaptation of Coriolanus, a timely political piece that deals with the violent and messy beginnings of democracy, and a powerful commentary on class politics and the nature of patriotism.
 
Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to power yet he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. Now he must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie  in a new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor widens every day.

Three sisters have gathered in their small Mississippi hometown awaiting news of their grandfather who is dying in a local hospital: Lenny, unmarried, Meg, a failed singer and Babe, on bail having shot her husband.

Legacy of Light 

Oct 27 - Nov 11
"Legacy of Light" By Karen Zacarias Western Stage STUDIO THEATRE
 
An intellectual joyride confronting a universal question
 
Two women scientists, living hundreds of years apart, explore the meaning of love, motherhood, family, art and science in this contemporary comedy. Legacy of Light juxtaposes the story of an 18th Century mathematician and scientist, who became unexpectedly pregnant at 42, and that of a 21st-century physicist desperately trying to conceive a child.  Legacy of Light, equates the laws of physical science with human love and uses magical realism in some dreamlike moments to draw together serendipitous stories.
