Classical Theatre Lab presents:
The Country Wife by William Wycherley
Kings Road Park
1000 Kings Road, West Hollywood 90069
William Wycherley's comic masterpiece, The Country Wife, is a 1675 sex romp and is perhaps the bawdiest of Restoration comedies. Wycherley's play introduces Horner, who claims to be impotent so that husbands and guardians will suppose him a safe companion for their women. His ruse fools the men of London ensuring Horner his way with any and every woman, especially the beautiful, naïve and newly married Margery. In his rollicking comedy Wycherley satirizes marriage, infidelity, jealousy, and love.

SST Productions Presents:
The Lady With the Little Dog by Tony Tanner
The Great Hall at Plummer Park
7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood 90069
The Lady With the Little Dog is a musical adaptation of a short story by Anton Chekov. A holiday romance between a married man and a married woman in the resort town of Yalta, an episode taken lightly at the time by the man in question, returns to haunt him on his return to Moscow. He realizes over time that the woman he treated in cavalier fashion is in fact the great love of his life. The woman herself had already acknowledged the depth of her feeling for him. Though hundreds of miles apart, the two find ways to spend brief, ecstatic times together until pressure from the woman's husband threatens to bring their liaison to an end. Though poignant at times, the story offers great charm and humor in its telling.
