2020-2021 Season

Stage One, Inc. Announces 2020-2021 Season at the Janesville Performing Arts Center.

Janesville Performing Arts Center • 408 S Main St, Janesville, WI.

Tickets: Adults – $16 • Students – $10

The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh

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.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

The 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.

God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza
March 12, 13, 19, & 20 at 7:30 PM • 14 & 21 at 2 PM

The Story: A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the 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.
