CAT's Past Seasons' Shows

An adaptation from Anton Chekhov by Roy Proctor. Three of Chekhov’s and Proctor’s funniest short works.

The Drinking Game: A financially comfortable middle-aged Russian man is in the market for a wife, so he enlists the help of the local marriage broker. Clever and humorous to start with, the story only gets better with a bottle of wine.

Settling the Score: A distraught man wants to buy a gun to shoot his wife and her lover, no wait, maybe just the lover, but no, maybe he’ll kill himself, but wait – the whole time, driving the gun salesman crazy.

The Would-Be Playwright: An aspiring writer passionate about her work finally gains an audience with a respected man of letters and reads aloud all nine acts until he just can’t take it any more.

Touring August 28-September 29, 2017. At CAT September 11, 2:30 and 8p.

Get your deerstalker cap on-the play's afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle's classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time?

When a family gathers at the command of its matriarch, no one is happy. Grandmother holds the purse strings to the clan’s inheritance and makes ludicrous and unreasonable demands on her family.

This world premiere, dark comedy will conclude CAT’s 2016-2017 season.

1920s high-society London is once again thrown into chaos by hapless playboy Bertie Wooster, this time in cahoots with his old school chum Eustace Bassington-Bassington. The two hatch a brilliant plan to dupe their meddling relatives in order to save Bertie from an undesired marriage and Eustace from an unwanted job in India. But will the ever-faithful manservant Jeeves be able to rescue these bumbling fools from themselves? A delightful romp full of deception and disguise. This faithful reproduction of the original P.G.
