PLAY SYNOPSIS: After losing her Mississippi home to creditors, Blanche du Bois relocates to the New Orleans home of her younger sister and brother-in-law, Stella and Stanley Kowalski.

Though she finds a glimmer of hope while connecting with Stanley's gentlemanly friend, Mitch, Blanche cannot face the truth of her own troubled past and ultimately descends into madness.

MAINSTAGE THEATRE   
"The Curious Savage"
May 5, 6, 11, 12, and          13 at 7pm &
May 13 at 2pm

PLAY SYNOPSIS: Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it. Knowing that the widow’s wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of the fortune, the stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium hoping to “bring her to her senses.” In the sanatorium Mrs. Savage meets various social misfits, men and women who just cannot adjust themselves to life, people who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide. In getting to know them, she realizes that she will find happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them. 

The dominant mood is high comedy, and the audience is left with a feeling that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems at times motivated only by greed and dishonesty.

Our Very Own Venue

Owning our own theatre affords us many opportunities but it also includes massive upkeep. Help with set-up, general cleaning, and maintenance is always appreciated.

Final Notes

Directors are needed at the helm of every show. We support directors to choose their own material and encourage submissions to our 

MainStage season.

You can help us in a variety of ways.

We would certainly appreciate a monetary contribution to the general overhead of WRCT.
