  The Hourglass Readers Present!
New Ipswich - Welcome spring with a romp through the world of Oscar Wilde! The Hourglass Readers bring you 'An Ideal Husband,' directed by Catherine Behrens. When a member of Parliament, Lord Chiltern (Chris McCartie), learns that his career and marriage to Lady Chiltern (Mia Moravis) will suffer scandal unless he submits to a blackmailer, the evil Mrs. Cheveley (Katrina Spenceman), he turns his fate over to lifelong bachelor Lord Goring (Jonathan E. Ray), 'the idlest man in London.' Brimming with witticisms, this staged reading adaptation of Oscar Wilde's stage play sparkles like vintage champagne. This cast of the Monadnock region's most talented and busiest actors also includes Don Wilmeth as the elder Goring, Heather Morrison as Lord Chiltern's sister Miss Mabel, Dan Petterson as the Vicomte de Nanjac, and Wendy Almeida as the scandal-loving Lady Markby. Emma Seidler and Sandy Littell round out the cast of society's illustrious ladies, Mrs. Marchmont and the Countess of Basildon. The Hourglass Readers welcome newcom

  BRT Presents: 'Olive and the Bitter Herbs'!
Keene - Branch River Theatre's 2014 summer offering, 'Olive and the Bitter Herbs,' which centers around curmudgeonly Olive Fisher, a retired New York actress who suddenly sees a ghost in her mirror. That, though, is the least of her problems. Her radiator's broken, the couple next door stink up her apartment with exotic cheeses, and the highlight of her long career was a sausage commercial in the '80s. Despite that she's not the most popular tenant in the building, her neighbors invite themselves into her life and she finds herself hosting a Passover Seder. But are Olive's guests there to see her, or the mysterious man in her mirror? 'Olive and the Bitter Herbs' is a comedy about connecting to the people in our lives-those with us, and those who have passed on The award-winning cast of Monadnock region actors includes Wendy Almeida in the title role, and features Peter Eisenstadter, Bert Torsey, Scott Gardner, Susan Ericson-West, and the requisite cameo by Hank Parkhurst!
