Hall, Production Manager of Stray Dog Theatre, among your “theatre friends.” Jay died earlier this summer, and on August 14th Stray Dog will host a memorial service at the Tower Grove Abbey, 2336 Tennessee Avenue, St. Louis 63104 (Tower Grove East). The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and will include a pot-luck supper, so feel free to bring a dish or dessert to share. Jay was a great friend to many whose life ended tragically and far too soon.

Season 106 Preview
For 2016-2017, West End Players Guild offers an exciting menu of thought-provoking new or rarely seen shows, including one St. Louis premiere and one world premiere of a new work created for our stage.
September 30-October 9, 2016: Season 106 kicks off with Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, directed by Ellie Schwetye. Stoppard spins simultaneous tales set two centuries apart in the same room of an English manor. The stories are bittersweet, the characters are endearing and the play is a delight.
November 4-13, 2016: What’s more timely in an election month than a story of the immigrants who made America? Steve Callahan directs the St. Louis premiere of Vladimir Zelevinsky’s Manifest|Destiny. This imaginative tale follows travelers on their historic journey across two centuries, two continents and a great ocean to find their place in a new world.
February 10-19, 2017: Think Lake Wobegon. Not the town, the actual lake. Frozen solid (it’s February, after all) with a great fish lurking beneath a hole in the ice. That’s the setting for Kevin Kling’s The Ice Fishing Play, an amusing look at a very funny pastime that also delivers some important lessons about life. Adam Grun directs.
April 21-30, 2017: Lucy Cashion is one of St. Louis’s most exciting and creative young theatre artists. Her Equally Represented Arts Theatre Company is well-known for cutting edge works such as Trash Macbeth, Make Hamlet and The Residents of Craigslist. Now Lucy brings to our stage the world premiere of her new take at the classic tale of Oedipus.
