Owen Carten and Hannah Perry
The story they said couldn’t be told is about to shatter the airwaves -- again!
The Well of Horniness, September 25-28
Meghan Brodie will direct an Actors’ Lab staged reading of Hughes’ 1983 play that borrows from the title of Radclyffe Hall’s controversial 1928 novel, “The Well of Loneliness.” Hughes’ take on the modern lesbian, however, could not be more different than Hall’s. This is the naughty side of noir.
USM Theatre
The USM Theatre season is replete with skirt-chasing dames, lonely love-torn souls, original dance, a production at the Portland Stage Studio Theater featuring a satirical southern belle and her hypochondriac son, followed by a pistol-packing nun, and the Maine premiere of the sensational new musical, Catch Me If You Can, as well as one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies “shadowed” by American Sign Language interpreter-performers.
