Tonight’s showing of Nixon’s Nixon at 7:30 p.m. is followed by a Free Opening Night Champagne Reception.
Nixon’s Nixon by Russell Lees
On August 7, 1974, the night before becoming the first and only American president to resign, Richard Nixon met with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger at the White House. There are no tapes of *this* meeting. In Russell Lees’ political satire, Nixon has not yet decided to resign, and both men are determined to secure their place in history. They drink, they talk…
‘Mr Lees’ play flashes with humor…as hilarious as it is hair-raising.’
(Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times)
Directed by Marcello Rollando, with Chris Patrick and Chris Baumer.

All is Always Now, by Robert Wray

Directed by Peter Coy, with Kevin O’Donnell, Chris Patrick, Anya Scott and Ryan Wender.
