Come see Hillary and Clinton for Valentine’s Day

Next up on our stage at the Union Avenue Christian Church is our Valentine’s Day treat, Lucas Hnath’s Hillary and Clinton.  Opening February 11th, it’s the perfect Valentine’s Weekend date night (or matinee).  Set in a budget motel room on a wintry night in early 2008, it’s the story of a woman who looks destined to be the first female president of the United States.  But, she’s having trouble getting her campaign off the ground and her husband, himself an ex-President, isn’t helping much.  You may think you know these people and what’s going to happen but, as playwright Hnath says, you don’t.  Is his story historical fact, historical fantasy, or something in-between?  You decide when you see this show featuring Deb Dennert as Hillary, Kurt Knoedelseder as Bill, Tyson Cole as Mark and Jonathan Garland as Barack.  Tim Naegelin makes his West End Players directorial debut.

Hillary and Clinton will be presented in seven performances February 11-20 in the theatre at Union Avenue Christian Church.  Shows are Thursdays (second week only), Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm.  Click here now to get your tickets.

Get the scoop on WEPG’s Season 110

Okay, let’s try this one again.  The Lost Year is behind us and the season that never happened is gone for good, but now our darkened theatre is lighting up once more.  Join us for a new year of Big Theatre in a Small Space, with another exciting schedule of plays never or rarely seen in St. Louis.  The season kicks off in September with Steven Dietz’s Bloomsday, an Irish time-travel romance (ever seen one of those?).  In December, it’s Shirley Lauro’s A Piece of My Heart, one of the most compelling dramas of the Vietnam war era, looking at the war from a women’s perspective.  In February, we present Lucas Hnath’s Hillary and Clinton.  Can you guess who that’s about?  And finally, in April, Martin McDonough’s The Lonesome West, the perhaps the darkest dark comedy you will ever see and certainly one of the funniest.  Click here for a complete Season 110 rundown.
