This fall, Cannon Theater Company is excited to return to live performance with two one-act plays!
The evening will open with Harold Pinter’s iconic 1957 one-act “The Dumb Waiter.” Two British hit-men are waiting in a basement room for their assignment. Pressure mounts as mysterious messages begin to arrive via a serving hatch discovered in the wall. A classic example of the theater of the absurd, menace and humor mingle in captivating tension as the question “What is going on upstairs?” takes on both immediate urgency and cosmic significance.
“Winter Break” by Joe Calarco debuted this past December and has since become an instant hit among high school and college theater companies. On the first night of winter break, nineteen teenagers navigate new friendships, breakups, loss, graduating, and the search for belonging. True to life, these characters swing from belly laughs to breakdowns to awkward silences in a series of intimate and gracefully drawn scenes, reminding us that high school is a metaphor for all of life.
