The Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue is all set to begin its 28th season, with four tremendously engaging and entertaining plays on the schedule from October through June 2013.
The company is already in rehearsal for Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire's "Good People," an unsentimental and sometimes funny but ultimately touching piece about the insurmountable divide between past and present and between those who make it and those who don't. "Good People," which won rave reviews on Broadway last season and last week was awarded the Horton Foote prize for outstanding new American play, opens the season on Thursday, October 25, and will run for three weekends, through November 11.
In January, the HTC presents Jerry Sterner's seriously funny play about Wall Street buccaneers and their victims, er, clients: "Other People's Money," an all-time favorite of many who work on "the Street."
March will bring to the stage in Quogue Canadian playwright Michael Healey's fascinating and poignant play, "The Drawer Boy," about a pair of aging farmers whose long-buried secrets are unearthed when a young actor pays them a visit.
The season wraps up in June with "How The Other Half Loves" one of the most hilarious plays by the U.K.'s prolific Sir Alan Ayckbourn, adapted specially for the American stage, about an extra-marital dalliance that leads to a cascade of confusion.
