At Play Theatre Roundup: 12/24 - 1/6

Wichita Community Theatre will present Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs January 24 through February 10. Part of Simon’s semi-autobiographical Eugene trilogy that follows Eugene Morris Jerome from New York to the army and back again via Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound, Brighton Beach Memoirs examines the protagonist’s struggles with puberty, sexual awakening, and his search for identity amid his daily struggles with family. This production is directed by Dan Schuster and is part of a season that will also include William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt.

The Crown Uptown Theatre will present The Church Basement Ladies 4 in February and March, while the Wichita State University School of Performing Arts will present Neil Simon’s Jake’s Women, directed by Tom Frye, in March and Brian Friel’s Faith Healer in April.
