DONALD CRIED
With Visiting Filmmaker Jesse Wakeman (Director, Co-writer, Lead Actor)

6:00 Champaign Reception With Filmmaker
6:30 Screening

Donald Cried follows main character Peter Latang (portrayed by Wakeman) who left his working class Rhode Island upbringing to reinvent himself as a slick, Wall Street mover and shaker. Fifteen years later, when he is forced to return home to bury his grandmother, he loses his wallet on the trip. Stranded, the only person he can think of to help him is his next door neighbor and former childhood friend Donald Treebeck (Kris Avedisian). Donald hasn't changed a bit, and what starts as a simple favor turns into a long van ride into their past. Past and present collide as this road trip comedy blends hilarious and painful moments shared between the two characters.

October, 2008. Young nun Colleen is avoiding all contact from her family, until an email from her mother announces, "Your brother is home." On returning to her childhood home in Asheville, NC, she finds her old room exactly how she left it: painted black and covered in goth/metal posters. Her parents are happy enough to see her, but unease and awkwardness abounds. Her brother is living as a recluse in the guesthouse since returning home from the Iraq war. During Colleen's visit, tensions rise and fall with a little help from Halloween, pot cupcakes, and GWAR.

THE CHERRY ORCHARD

The Moscow Art Theatre

First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, this production of Anton Chekhov's classic tale, starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago. Adolf Shapiro's interpretation asks, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer is, of course, on the stage.
Runtime: approx 180 minutes with intermission, Presented in Russian with English subtitles.

Tickets $15, Tropic Members $12

Skylight (By Experience) (not yet confirmed)

Winner of the 2015 Tony® Award for Best Revival of a Play, Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan feature in the West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, captured live during the production's original 2014 London run by National Theatre Live.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Bill Nighy, whose extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and whose stage roles include Pravda and the world premiere of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour on Broadway, plays alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby, An Education) who is making her West End stage debut, and Matthew Beard (An Education, One Day, The Look of Love).

Skylight is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience with Helen Mirren, which was also broadcast to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

David Hare is the author of 29 plays for stage, including Plenty, Racing Demon, Amy’s View, Pravda (with Howard Brenton) and Stuff Happens. His many screenplays include The Hours and The Reader.

Skylight was originally produced at the National Theatre in 1995, before transferring to the West End and Broadway, and won an Olivier Award for Best Play.

Tickets 20, Members $18
