Ruth Steiner is a teacher and respected short story writer. Her student and protégée is Lisa Morrison. Over the course of 6 years, Lisa journeys from insecure student to successful writer.
After publishing a well-received collection of short stories, Lisa writes a novel based on Ruth’s affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz, and the women must deal with the moral dilemma of whether a person’s life events are suitable for another to use in their own creative process. A perfect example of the morality plays that Dignity Players strives to bring to Annapolis theatre.
The tender story of Alfie Byrne, a bus driver living in 1960’s Dublin. A passionate fan of Oscar Wilde, Alfie is determined to stage a version of Salome at his church,
despite the objections of church authorities. In the process of fighting for the play, Alfie is finally forced to confront his own sexuality and take a stand in the world. The production is an entertaining exploration into Catholic social justice.
