Broadway Actor, Bill Bowers and Tony Award-nominated, Tom Hewitt take on eight characters in this classic romp of a gothic spoof. Named one of the best plays of the 20th Century by the New York Times and Time MagazineAaron Mark directs Charles Ludlam’s campy comedy which tells the pell-mell tale of Lady Enid (Hewitt) and Lord Edgar (Bowers) who arrive one stormy night at a haunted and dreary estate to investigate the sudden disappearance of Irma Vep. Sidesplitting antics and mysteries unfold as the two journey from the London manor to the ancient pyramids in Egypt with vampires, werewolves, mummies and more in tow in this satire of Victorian melodrama, Gothic horror and classic films.

The acrimonious give and take of life sets up the premise for Michael Frayn’s (Noises Off and Copenhagen) Tony Award-nominated Benefactors. In 1960s London, visionary architect David, played by long time BTG alum David Adkins, struggles to follow his dream of transforming the slums at Basuto Road into affordable mass-housing projects as his firm pressures him to design McMansion-style apartments instead. He and his wife, Jane, played by Adkins’ real-life partner Corinna May, are also trying to salvage the troubled marriage of their neighbors played by real-life married couple, Colin (Walton Wilson) a former journalist and Shelia (Barbara Sims), a hopeless romantic and retired nurse. Skillfully examining the fragility of human relationships, Benefactors sketches an intricate portrait of 1960s idealism and the toll political and psychological sacrifice has on hope, friendship, and love.
