MAYBE IT'S JUST ME by Phil Ginsburg

Take a trip inside the mind of local playwright, poet, comic, neurotic and modest mystic Phil Ginsburg with an evening of his hysterical short plays, poetry, and an opener by standup comic Sara B. Sirius. Anonymous encounter groups, coma patients, spouses who have put out hits on each other, a dystopian society where everyone is doomed to polka and a family that speaks only in email spam subject lines are only some of Phil’s strange brainchildren.

Directed by Kevin Brown, Beth Clements Mosley and Dylan Mosley.

Featuring Playwright and poet Phil Ginsburg, comic Sara B. Sirius, actors Elizabeth Kahn, Greg Lanning, Eric Peterson, Bob Kopp, Bob Morsch, JaNae Stansbery, Ashley Crockett and Mark Sullivan.

September 25 & 26, October 1, 2 3 & 4, 2015

 ENDGAME by Samuel Beckett

Star Bar's second encounter in recent years with Samuel Beckett brings his absurd, desolate and blackly hilarious vision of futility, mutual misery and the end of everything to the stage once more with their early-spring production of ENDGAME.
Originally written in French and titled Fin de Partie (Game Over), ENDGAME was first performed as a French-language production at the Royal Court Theatre in London, opening April 3, 1957. It, along with WAITING FOR GODOT, is generally held to be one of Beckett's most important works and one of the defining works of the genre known as Absurdist Theatre. Beckett himself is regarded as one of the most influential writers of the 20th Century.

March 11 - 26, 2016

Featuring Bob Morsch, Jude Bishop, Steve Wallace and Sallie Walker.

Directed by Dylan Mosley

STUPID FUCKING BIRD by Aaron Posner, sort of adapted from The Seagull by Anton Chekhov

Posner's wildly irreverent reworking of Chekhov's masterpiece is not only a contemplation of young and old, present and past, but a meta-meditation on the state of modern theatre and the purpose of art as a cultural catalyst. In it everyone is in love and almost no one is loved in return; luxury and privilege are everywhere while happiness is absent; everyone has everything but somehow manages to feel only emptiness. Hilarious!
The Washington Post calls SFB a "savvy, petulant blitz through Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull... less an adaptation of Chekhov’s landmark drama than a funny, moving slugfest, a ripe mashup of mock and awe…" DCist.com calls it "a refreshing splash of cool water on dry, well-trod terrain…STUPID FUCKING BIRD is what you get from a writer who not only adores the material he’s adapting, but understands it precisely.”

Directed by Christian O'Shaughnessy.

Featuring Jude BishopStephanie Schlis, Alysabeth Clements Mosley, Michael Augenstein, Dastan Harrison, Paige Reilly and Parker Fowler.
