Lady Windermere’s Fan by Oscar Wilde
One of Oscar Wilde’s most witty and uncompromisingly satirical plays takes a serious yet comedic look at marriage, sex and gender. Wilde’s play contains one of his best known lines: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

The Man Who Came to Dinner by Kauffman & Hart
Sheridan Whiteside, having dined at the home of the Stanleys, slips on their doorstep, breaking his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow. The Stanley living room is monopolized by the irascible invalid; ex-convicts are invited to meals; and transatlantic calls bring a $784 phone bill. The arrival of strange gifts from his friends further destroys domestic tranquility.

A note from our Artistic Director
Hello! Thanks for taking to time to read this.
We are still a community! When Erin and I started Theatre in the Country over eight years ago it was with a clear vision to be first and foremost a community organization that gave artists and patrons, with a passion for theatre, a place to really belong. It has been a wonderful experience thus far, and we have enjoyed the journey immensely. We are blessed to know so many wonderful people; whether you are on stage, back stage, in the shop, at the sewing machine, in the tech booth, taking tickets, holding a paint brush or an audience member we consider each one of you a part of the TIC Clan, and we want to see you again!
To that end we are creating a series of shows we call TIC’s Online Theatre Experience. It is a place where on Friday and Saturday nights you can sit down at your Smart TV, phone, tablet or computer and watch the TIC performers you know and love put on a play for you through the power of ZOOM. Plus! You can interact with them afterwards, in a way that you often don’t get to do, even when you see them perform in person.
We are selecting some great old plays that are in the public domain to get started, and we are contacting our usual script licensing providers to see what the new rules are, so that we can bring you an ongoing variety of shows as we all hunker down at home. There is no reason not to hunker together – at a distance! All the information and the “How To’s” are listed below. Please come join us. We miss you. It’s going to be fun I promise.
Our bodies may be distant, but our spirits need not be so.
Peace & Health, Reg & Erin Parks
