all for One productions announces its 2008 – 2009 season
all for One is excited to produce thought-provoking, family-friendly plays which are seldom if ever seen on any other Fort Wayne stage.
This September, experience an evening with the genius behind The Chronicles of Narnia and Prince Caspian as all for One and Emmanuel Community Church produce The Spotlight Series with professional actor Tom Key, performing C.S. Lewis On Stage. Performances are Monday and Tuesday, September 29 & 30, 7:00 PM at First Missionary Church, 701 W. Rudisill Blvd., Fort Wayne. The public is invited to stay for an open discussion of faith and art following each performance. Rated G for all audiences. Material of interest to Middle School +.
The Home Stage season opens with the hit Broadway comedy, Over the River and Through the Woods by Joe DiPietro (author of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change). Nick spends every Sunday afternoon with his two sets of Italian-immigrant grandparents in Hoboken…until he’s offered a major job promotion which would move him to Washington state. The grandparents’ plot to keep him on the East Coast proves to be embarrassing and exasperating for Nick, and hilarious for the audience. An uproarious comedy which celebrates families and what they give to us, whether nearby or far away. October 24-26; October 31– November 2, 2008 Rated G for all audiences.
all for One‘s alternative theatre piece to beat the mid-winter blahs is the provocative and timely two-character drama, I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Given to Me By a Young Lady From Rwanda, by Sonja Linden. This surprisingly funny meeting of two cultures introduces us to Juliette, a young Rwandan refugee living in London, and Simon, a middle-aged struggling novelist assigned to help her with her English writing skills. As he encourages her to write her personal story, and she resists, we are drawn into the reality of tragedy and triumph for all those who have lived in war-torn countries. February 13-15, 2009 Rated PG-13 for subject matter.
all for One closes its season with an exciting new period drama by D.W. Gregory, Radium Girls.
Set in the 1920s, Radium Girls tells the story of the painters of luminous dials (paint made with radium dust) and the dreadful deaths suffered by many of them before the dangers of radiation were discovered. A lively comedy-drama in which 10 actors and actresses portray 30 roles, Radium Girls explores the moral and ethical obligations of scientists, doctors, employers and the media. As Grace fights her way through the complex and resistant legal system to force the industry to accept its share of responsibility, we are forced to ask hard questions about how we each view the employee/employer relationship. April 24-26 and May 1-3, 2009 Rated PG for subject matter.
