The Provincetown Theater Presents

"Happy Days" by Samuel Beckett

Mar 10 - Mar 12 at 7:30 pm
Mar 13 at 2:00 pm

happydays-final   Guest artist Holly Erin McCarthy opens The Provincetown Theater’s 2016 season with Samuel Beckett’s “Happy Days”, running March 10 to 13 with 7:30 pm curtain times. Holly is a featured actor at numerous theatre companies, including Cape Rep Theatre, Cotuit Center for the Arts, Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, Harwich Junior Theatre and the GEVA Theatre.  As Founding Executive Director of Theatre Under the Stairs, Holly has written and directed many plays for youth audiences.  Holly is known widely as a prolific and funny director, writer and producer of theatre on Cape Cod.  Anthony Teixeira will appear in the role of Willie. Playwright Samuel Beckett is regarded as one of America’s true theatrical innovators.  His surrealist-absurdist plays call for specific and striking imagery and his text is praised as spare and poetic.  In “Happy Days” his lead character, Winnie, is buried to her waist in a mound.  By the end of the play, she has sunken into the mound almost entirely.  Winnie, in this static situation, can perform only an elaborate ballet of the hands and head using limited props, punctuating the performance with vocal trills, arias, wistful commentary.

The Provincetown Theater Presents

“The Dresser” by Ronald Harwood

Apr 06 - Apr 09, Apr 14 - Apr 16, Apr 21 - Apr 23 at 7:30 pm
Apr 10, Apr 17, Apr 24 at 2:00 pm

In April, Ronald Harwood’s “The Dresser” takes center stage for PTCP. The New York Times described the play as being full of “perfectly observed, devilishly entertaining backstage lore”. “The Dresser” chronicles the end times of England’s once grand touring companies, revealing the shabby egos behind the glamour of the stage. The singular dedication of the company’s dresser holds the show together despite its senile leading actor (who struggles to bring King Lear to the stage) and amidst the wartime bombings of London. Anthony Jackman will direct. Tickets coming soon!
