2014-2015 Season

Falcon’s next production is Rabbit Hole by David Lindsey-Abaire.  This pulitzer prize-winning script is a powerful and provocative night of theater that is not to be missed.

Rabbit Hole traces the physical and emotional aftermath of a couple’s loss of their only child. The story examines the languishing and wilting relationship of Becca and Howie Corbett whose son Danny was killed by a teenage driver. In the ensuing months, approved the couple, along with Becca’s mother and sister, grapple with grief, guilt, and inevitable blame as they attempt to make sense of the tragedy. Peppered with a surprising amount of humor, the play deftly depicts the impact and outcome of a parent’s worst nightmare come true.

Performances will be March 24, 25, 30, 31, April 1, 6, 7, and 8 at 8 PM.

I look to Falcon’s past as well as to our future.  Looking back at what we’ve achieved gives me a great sense of pride and accomplishment, and it also teaches me many things about the places we’ve been and where we may have come up short of our own expectations.  Looking forward, we apply what we’ve learned from both our successes and failures so we can continue to build a stronger company and create better theatre for our audiences.

Applying what we’ve learned has never been more important as we embark on our 25th anniversary season as it is one of the most exciting, ambitious seasons we’ve ever mounted.  As you will see from our season listing, plays include a Victorian thriller, a dual offering for the holidays, a powerful, racially-driven classic, an emotional tale from America’s heartland and a remounting of one of our most talked-about musicals.

I could never pick a favorite from this coming season, but I’m particularly excited about the decision to celebrate our 25th anniversary by bringing back Assassins.  In 1998, we garnered critical and audience acclaim with a production that brought together an all-star cast of local talent.  It was truly a hallmark of our early work.  This year we will stage it again, entirely anew, as a celebration of our past and a challenge for our future.

Our past is what defines us but it is our future that inspires us.  I am extremely excited about this season and invite you to come join us again this year.  Your support makes all we do possible and continues to cultivate our Passion for Performance.
