Jun 23 - Jun 25, Jun 30 - Jul 02, Sep 04 at 7:30 pm

    hamlet Directed by Jake Ford. Peregrine Theatre Ensemble is excited to play with some of the greatest words ever written by arguably the greatest playwright and sculptor of the English language. Peregrine's coming production of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" promises to be a fast paced, modern, pulls-no-punches meditation on madness, paranoia, truth and politics. Oh yes, and love. Suspicion and dark humor reign as an unstable nation teeters on the brink of war and a vengeful heir toys with murder and madness. In love, as in the politics of war, no truth can be trusted. We know how it ends, but we can't wait to see what happens. http://www.peregrinetheatre.com/ Premium Seating  $35.00 General Seating $25.00 A  limited number of rush tickets will become available on the day of the show for $10.

"Along The River Road" A new play written by Candace Perry.

Begins May 5

With generous support from the Kaplan Foundation, Cotuit Center for the Arts announces a new collaboration designed to workshop four original plays by four local playwrights over the course of one year.  Theater partners include Cotuit Center for the Arts, Harwich Junior Theatre, Provincetown Theater, and Woods Hole Theater Company. Each work will be presented in staged readings four times, once each season over the course of a year, in four venues from the upper Cape to the lower Cape, reaching four different audiences.  The partners each invited a local playwright and asked that they pen a new full length play for up to six actors. Readings will take place in the four theaters simultaneously, the first with each playwright in the “home” of their presenter, then rotating between the four venues. Dates of the performances are scheduled for May 5, August 4, November 3, 2014; and February 2, 2015 (Dates subject to change).  A festival of all four plays will be scheduled at the completion of the cycle. Featured playwrights are Bronwen Prosser (Cotuit Center for the Arts), Susan Kosoff (Harwich Junior Theatre),  Candace Perry (Provincetown Theater) and Joe Richards (Woods Hole Theater Company).  The program is funded by generous support from the Kaplan Foundation. Admission is free.  More details and exact show times coming soon.
