Due to the COVID 19 crisis, Stage One has decided to postpone the productions of The Pillowman and A Christmas Carol. These productions will be rescheduled when COVID 19 numbers decrease. Please stay safe and wear a mask in public so we can return to the stage sooner!
Thank you for your kind understanding, Stage One Board of Directors
The Story: With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.
Story: As miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge falls asleep in his dreary home on
Christmas Eve, three ghosts appear, each revealing to Scrooge the wrong doings
of his life and what will happen if he continues in his evil ways. He is racked
with fear and remorse and sets out on Christmas Day to bless with his newfound
generosity all those whom he has neglected and abused.

Story: A playground altercation between
eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting

meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off,
leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

The Story: In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four or five weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. Cherie, a nightclub chanteuse, is the passenger with most to worry about. She’s been pursued and finally kidnapped by a twenty-one-year-old cowboy with a ranch of his own and the romantic methods of an unusually headstrong bull. As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver at last find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle-age scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance.
