Bernadette Nason's

Confessions of an English Danger Girl

Written and performed by Bernadette Nason

April 23- May 1, 2021

Named after her childhood club the Danger Girls, Bernadette Nason’s Confessions of an English Danger Girl takes us through the ups and downs of adolescence through Bernadette’s misadventures while growing up in 60s England. With the Danger Girls club slogan as inspiration, participants will learn of shenanigans, family dramas, and how “Helpful, but Dangerous” plays into Bernadette’s recalled adventures.

Agatha Christie's

The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Adapted and directed by Lara Toner Haddock

Costumes by Diana Huckaby and Buffy Manners

May 21-30, 2021

The Mysterious Affair at Styles was Christie’s first published novel and introduced the world to one of her most beloved characters, Belgian Inspector Hercule Poirot. Employing a hybrid approach to theatrical filming in the pandemic, actors will be filmed remotely. To enhance the experience early purchasers will have the option to add an interactive “additional clue package.”
