Laundry and Bourbon by James McLure on the GreenMarket Stage
Performances November 19 – 29 • Reserve your square for the hilarious and touching production of Laundry and Bourbon by James McLure. The show focuses on the discontent and very funny gossip of three small-town wives whose marriages have turned out to be less than ideal.

The setting for the play is Elizabeth’s porch in Texas, on a hot summer – a tiny town plunked down, like so many others of that state, in the middle of a nowhere that seems to consist of burning sun and empty vistas. The action centers on the discontent and hilarious gossip of three small-town wives whose marriages have turned out to be less than was hoped for. Elizabeth is a housewife whose Vietnam veteran husband has been missing for two days. She is visited by her two gossiping pals, Hattie, whose rambunctious children wreak havoc wherever they go, and Amy Lee, born into poverty but now married to money. Drinks are imbibed, and secrets are possibly revealed.

Parallel Lives: The Kathy and Mo Show (Abridged) on the GreenMarket Stage
Performances December 3 – 12 • This has all of the right ingredients to make you laugh the night away. In the opening scene, two Supreme Beings plan the beginning of the world with the relish of two slightly sadistic suburban wives decorating a living room. Once they’ve decided on the color scheme of the races, a little concerned that white people will feel slighted being such a boring color, they create sex and the sexes. Afraid women will have too many advantages, the Beings decide to make childbirth painful and to give men enormous egos as compensation. From this moment, the audience is whisked through the outrageous universe of Kathy and Mo, where two actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life.

I Never Saw Another Butterfly (Youth Theatre) on the GreenMarket Stage
Performances December 17 – 19 • A widely produced play brings an added dimension to the story of the children of Terezin, a ghetto under Nazi rule during World War II. Though few of the children survived, their lives were given meaning and hope through the tireless efforts of an inspirational teacher, Irena, who challenged their creativity and artistry in a makeshift classroom using scavenged materials which she kept hidden from the authorities. More than 5,000 drawings, poems and prose pieces were produced by the children in the concentration camp during its three- year existence, thus providing a legacy that continues to be honored and celebrated today.

While the Alliance for the Arts continues to make ends meet with cost reductions and creative programming, we experienced $500,000 in revenue losses due directly to the pandemic. Put simply, ticket sales and class fees are not enough to sustain the organization.

We’re relying on you to help close the financial gap. To answer the call, two very amazing Alliance members have banded together to offer an end of year match challenge of $30,000. It’s an ambitious task, to say the least, but the Alliance is made up of people like you – people who believe, as we believe, that the arts have the power to transform lives and improve our community and that arts and culture are vital.

Any gift – from $1 to $30,000 – made between now and December 31st will be matched – dollar for dollar by the Bireley Family Foundation and Bruce & Janet Bunch. This is a big deal for the Alliance and we know we can do it with your help.
