Synopsis:
On a warm Saturday night in the early autumn of the 1962, Nick, an opportunistic university
professor and his wife are invited to an after party by the University President’s daughter Martha and her husband George, a senior professor. As the drinks flow and inhibitions are lowered, what is supposed to be a pleasant nightcap quickly turns into something unexpected. As they talk about their pasts, a casual slip of the tongue reveals something tragic that has defined and shaped the older couple’s lives. Edward Albee’s work has captivated audiences for over 50 years on stage and film, and STAG is most happy to present this iconic play which will be their VDL entry for 2017.

Synopsis:
Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other’s lives. THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of 33 years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another—through
advice and raucous repartee—to get through the
challenges that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends rally ‘round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction.

Synopsis:
Forty years ago, Margot Mason, pioneer of the 1970s Women’s Liberation movement and fearless academic, wrote her groundbreaking work The Cerebral Vagina and numerous best-sellers followed. Now she has writer’s block. Molly, an unannounced visitor and committed fan of Margot and her work, offers a potential solution—until Molly produces a gun and calmly informs Margot that she intends to kill her.
Joanna Murray-Smith’s deliciously wicked comedy deftly walks the tightrope between satire and farce, proving the female of the species is not only deadlier, but funnier than the male.

Face to Face and Charitable Intent (2 plays from the Jack Manning Trilogy) David Williamson

Synopsis:
In the 1990s David Williamson, Australia’s best-known playwright, saw the dramatic potential of Community Conferencing—a process which
facilitates communication between people who are in serious interpersonal conflict or are dealing with anti-social behaviour. Williamson demonstrated the pow-er of Community Conferencing by translating it to the stage in his Jack Manning Trilogy.
These two short plays from the Trilogy explore very different cases of workplace conflict, with contrasting outcomes. Charitable Intent deals with a charity fund-raising company which has been undergoing disruptive organisational change. In Face to Face, a victim of workplace bullying has then been fired after vandalising his boss’s expensive car. In each intriguing situation there are unexpected developments, as secrets are revealed and human emotions and motivations come to the surface.
