The Last Best Small Town by John Guerra

Director: Ernie González, Jr.

March 2-6, 2022

THE LAST, BEST SMALL TOWN tells the story of two neighboring families --one Latinx and one white--who live in the small southern California town of Fillmore. As the first decade of the 21st century unfolds, the children of these families come of age, fall in love, and suffer loss, as they continually hunt for their place in a world that can no longer promise them a better life than their parents.

"Poignant and well-crafted! ...beautiful, haunting, funny, sad, and hopeful. Lovely work!  ” Nick Malakhow, playwright

April 8-10, 2022

We end our Season with a student directed production performing in rep!

Scissoring:

When Abigail Bauer takes a job as a teacher at a conservative Catholic school, she is forced to step back into the closet against the wishes of her long-term girlfriend. As she struggles to reconcile her professional ambitions, personal relationships, religious beliefs, and internalized shame, Abigail receives guidance from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and Eleanor’s devoted friend and lover, Lorena Hickok. Through it all, Abigail must find the courage to be unabashedly herself.

“Quintana’s crisp, humorous writing is effervescent and lively… SCISSORING is…perfect LGBTQ+ themed theater…for all time and all audiences, as it drives home the harm and anguish that’s born out of discrimination… It’s a message that should be heard especially now, especially always.” —TheaterPizzazz.com.

“…SCISSORING is an excellent and thought-provoking piece sure to inspire both a laugh and a tear.” —Theasy.com.

“…Quintana creates a complex protagonist who is sympathetic, exasperating and engaging… SCISSORING stands as an accomplished work of theater.” —TheaterScene.net.
