Nunsense

By Dan Goggin

Directed by Dr. Biliana Stoytcheva-Horissian

February 23-26, 2022

In this funny, irreverent, and charming musical, the nuns known as the Little Sisters of Hoboken are putting on a show to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). With a wide range of musical styles, and a recently-updated script full of gags, jokes, and heart, Nunsense truly IS “habit forming”!


The Treatment

By Pablo Remón, Translated by Dr. Sandra Kingery

Directed by Dr. Biliana Stoytcheva-Horissian

April 20-23, 2022

In the film industry, the term “treatment” refers to the summary of a future film, the step before a script, that the creator sends around different production companies with the hope of it finally being made into a film. The majority are never produced. This is the story of one of those script writers in the middle of a personal crisis, but also the story of several characters who share the desire to write the story of their past, what they are and what they would have liked to have been. A handful of actors play twenty characters who go through a number of spaces and times in this sharp and funny play—in the first fully-staged production of a new English-Language translation by Lycoming College Professor Dr. Sandra Kingery.


Past Productions:

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

By Anne Washburn

Directed by Dr. C. Austin Hill

November 17-20, 2021

Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy propels us from the “very near future” (or maybe yesterday) forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to pass the time and calm their nerves by piecing together the plot of "The Simpsons" episode "Cape Feare" entirely from memory. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.
