Thunder River Theatre Company is pleased to announce their 2010-2011 season. Opening the new year is Sarah Ruhl’s “The Clean House”. It’s an extraordinary play by an exciting new voice in American drama, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2004. This theatrical and wildly funny, whimsical look at class, comedy, and the nature of love gives a new meaning to, “I almost died laughing.” The play runs Sept. 23-25, Oct. 1-3, 7-9, 2010, and will be directed by company member Sue Lavin.The December production is another in a series of TRTC originals, following the idea of their Greek Shards productions, only this time they take on the Bard in the “The Mysteries of Shakespeare”. You will not want to miss this exciting, in-depth theatrical look into the life, times, plays and mysteries of one of the world‚s greatest masters. Join TRTC on Dec. 2-4, 10-12, 16-18, 2010, for a provocative and fun original like none other you’ve experienced. The production is developed, written, and directed by TRTC’s Executive Artistic Director Lon Winston and Associate Artistic Director Valerie Haugen.Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer-Prize Winning play “A Streetcar Named Desire” opens Feb. 24-26, March 4-6, 7-9, 2011. This celebrated drama ranks as one of the greatest in American theatre, and will star Valerie Haugen as Blanche DuBois, and will be directed and designed by Lon Winston.Closing out this wonderful season is Horton Foote’s “The Trip to Bountiful”. This sentimental play is about the myth of an idea called home. The characters long to believe in the reality of real estate, that a house is a fortress and an anchor in a world of threatening flux. Foote is perhaps best known for his Academy Award-winning screenplays for the 1962 film “To Kill A Mockingbird and the 1983 film “Tender Mercies”. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1995 for his play “The Young Man From Atlanta”.
