Written by Harold Pinter
Directed by Lauren Hall

Thursday, September 3 at 7 p.m.
Saturday, September 5 at 4 p.m.
Sunday, September 6 at 4 p.m.
Black Box Theatre at Westmont College

Sarah and Richard are married, completely in love, and unfaithful to each other "two or three times a week with great regularity." Harold Pinter's witty one-act dances with the ideas of love, commitment, fantasy, and control with both delicacy and irreverence.


"Poor, Poor Lear"

Written by Katya Krohn and Nina Sallinen

Thursday, September 3 at 8 p.m.
Saturday, September 5 at 2 p.m.
Sunday, September 6 at 2 p.m.
Meet at Porter Theatre;
the audience will be escorted to the performance space

In this strikingly original dark comedy, Finnish actress Nina Sallinen portrays a 90 year-old theatrical grande dame who brazenly chooses King Lear for her farewell performance. The aging actress unintentionally highlights her own life story while gradually becoming cognizant of the parallels between her life and Lear's. Sallinen won a 2008 Indy Award for her tour-de-force performance.


"The Cherry Orchard"

Written by Anton Chekhov
Directed by John Blondell

Saturday, September 5 at 7 p.m.
Sunday, September 6 at 7 p.m.
Porter Theatre at Westmont College

Lyubov Andreevna returns from Paris to find that the family estate is in arrears, and must be sold. Chekhov's last play, and a modern masterpiece. Lit Moon Artistic Director John Blondell won an Indy Award for his direction, of this sometimes heart-breaking and often hilarious picture of a family and period in transition. The cast is just back from their performances at the Bitola Shakespeare Festival in Macedonia.

"...Nothing less than a triumph," hailed the Santa Barbara Independent.
