I Can't Imagine Tomorrow by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Robert Cusack
“I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow” is a two-character play about a lonely and ill spinster being courted by a pathologically shy teacher. Their confrontation, sometimes gentle, sometimes tense, becomes a revealing and moving emotional experience as they accept the need to face alone the terrors that might be more easily met together.
Variations On the Death of Trotsky
Directed by Donna McLaughlin Wyant
This comedy fictionalizes the day of the death of Trotsky, divided into eight scene variations in which Trotsky dies at the end of every scene progressing the story a bit further each time.
Weekend One-Acts cast members are Gary Betsworth*, Robert Cusack, Bridget Cusack*, Virgil de la Cruz, and Harold Sauer, Kathleen Sauer, and Jeffrey Wyant.
