Be My Baby tells the story of John, an irascible Scotsman, and Maud, an uptight English woman, both in their 60s, who take on the journey of a lifetime. When their young wards, Christy and Gloria, decide to marry and then decide to adopt a child, the older couple (who despise each other) have to travel 6,000 miles to California to pick up the child and bring her safely home to Scotland. Along the way they encounter a host of characters (played by a male and a female who play them all!) and form a new partnership while caring for the helpless newborn. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, Be My Baby is a heartwarming story of life, of loss, and most of all, love.
A limited number of cabaret tables are available (seating for 4). Attendees may bring their own refreshments. Reservations are strongly recommended.
Death by Design
by Rob Urbinati, directed by Kate Fishman
Death by Design by Rob Urbinati is a farcical look at the British Murder Mystery. What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingenue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
