Last Train to Nibroc
by Arlene Hutton
Directed by Janet Bouman Peterson
March 18 – April 3, 2022 at the Norvell Commons of St. Christopher’s Church
“We’re all changing. We’re all riding this country’s future like this train’s a’rolling along the track, just hoping we get somewhere and don’t run off the tracks somewhere along the way.” December 28, 1940. Raleigh, an officer on medical discharge, first meets May, an aspiring missionary, on a cross-country train, although they live only miles apart in Kentucky. In three scenes over three years, they laugh, relate, misunderstand, clash and observe what’s happening in the world and each other. Last Train to Nibroc is a timely love story that “weave[s] the epic and the incidental with the lightest and least obtrusive thread.” Ginia Bellafante, New York Times. Subscriptions and single tickets purchased for An Inspector Calls can be applied to this production.
Sense and Sensibility
By Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Erin Nicole Eggers
July 22-31, 2022 at the Todd Wehr Auditorium of Concordia University
A fresh, clever and faithful treatment of Austen’s novel, Sense and Sensibility follows the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, when their father’s death and stepbrother’s abandonment leave them without prospects. Can the sisters recognize their unique roles, amidst bewildering societal demands, and find where they fit? Subscriptions and single tickets already purchased for this production will be honored.
“For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” Romans 12:4-5
