Pine Creek Theatre presents two plays in repertory in September 2017
The Miracle Worker by William Gibson
September 27 & 29 at 7:00 p.m.
WINNER! 1960 TONY AWARD - Best Play
Sign Language interpreters and braille programs available at both MW shows
This classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence.
Unexpected Tenderness by Israel Horovitz
September 28 & 30 at 7:00 p.m.
Mature content and language, domestic violence enacted
This poignant drama about a dysfunctional Jewish family in Massachusetts is structured as a memory play. Roddy Stern recalls what it was like growing up in a family dominated by his paranoid and pathologically jealous father, a truck driver who lurked outside his house instead of working to catch his wife with other men. A long suffering and abused saint, Roddy's mother raised two children in this difficult environment. Roddy's complex father is portrayed as a loving man with a demon inside that he fights but cannot exorcize. He eventually loses all control and drives away the family he loves. samuelfrench.com
"A play of real power and dimension... It stays with the mind and heart." - N.Y. Post.
"Characters spring to immediate life and built in humor helps propel both the characterizations and the plot." Variety
Given the subject matters of the shows this fall, we've reached out to two local organizations to "partner" with us to raise awareness. For The Miracle Worker, we are partnering with Colorado School for the Deaf & the Blind. For Unexpected Tenderness, we are partnering with Tessa. These organizations will provide a short presentation during intermission at each show. We will also be accepting donations on behalf of these organizations during the shows.
