Our fall production of “Drinking Habits” has been postponed. We hope to produce it when possible.

Our Fall Production will be “The Stranger” by Agatha ChristieThe Stranger Cover
a Romantic Thriller in 3 acts
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French
Director: CherylAnn Welch
Co-Producers: CherylAnn Welch & Marcus Hatch

In Agatha Christie’s The Stranger, a staid, predictable young man returns from afar after five years of making his fortune. His fiancee awaits him in her empty rented apartment, ready to be married that very afternoon. A handsome man comes to see about renting the apartment. Events take a stunning turn when the couple buy a secluded country cottage. Full of twists, turns and terror, The Stranger is pure Agatha Christie.

– No appointment needed. If you want a specific time, please contact CherylAnn Welch at cheannwelch@gmail.com or leave a message at (617) 571-8865.
– A resume and headshot are REQUIRED. Please also bring a list of any conflict dates between September 3 and November 3.
