Stratford theater performances for the year
SQUARE ONE THEATRE’s upcoming 23rd Season is highlighted by the brilliantly intricate thriller, Deadly Murder (November 12 through November 17, 2012); a chronically entertaining comedy, Distracted (March 1 through March 16, 2013) and, 4000 Miles (pending availability) a funny, moving, altogether wonderful new play (May 17 through June 1, 2013). All three productions will be directed by Tom Holehan, Square One Theatre Artistic Director.
Chock full of twists, turns and bluffs, David Foley’s brilliantly intricate thriller, Deadly Murder, is guaranteed to be one step ahead of the audience all the way! Camille Dargus has beauty, brains, wealth and a successful career. She also has a penchant for attractive young men. One night she meets a young waiter and takes him back to her SoHo apartment only to find that there’s more to the man than meets the eye. Camille finds herself held hostage at gunpoint by a man who seems frighteningly familiar with the past Camille has struggled to forget.

The New York Daily News called Distracted “A chronically entertaining comedy.” Playwright Lisa Loomer’s hilarious, provocative and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma that asks: ‘Are we so tuned into our 24/7 sound bites world that we’ve tuned out what really matters?’ What’s really wrong with nine-year-old Jesse? He can’t sit still. His teacher thinks it’s Attention Deficit Disorder. Dad says, “He’s just a boy!” And Mom is on a quest for answers. Is Jesse dysfunctional or just different?
