Award-winning fringe companies Argos Productions (Argos) and Happy Medium Theatre (HMT) come together for a co-production of Lifers by John Shea and Maureen Cornell. Heading up the production is Boston director, IRNE Award nominated Brett Marks (Windowmen, Boston Playwrights’ Theatre). The production runs for three weeks (March 20th-April 4th, 2015) at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre at 949 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215.
About the Production:
Lifers by John Shea and Maureen Cornell takes place in Boston in 2004, just as the smoking ban is about to go into effect in Massachusetts. And no one is feeling the hurt like the staff at this local restaurant. Winfield, the new guy with no previous work experience, finds himself in over his head as the restaurant prepares to rebrand itself to attract new and more affluent clientele. As Sherry, newly promoted to manager, tries to whip the staff into shape for the re-launch, the wait staff (and surly cook) struggle to find their footing as change is swirling around them. With the restaurant’s future on the line, tempers flare, plates are broken, and buttons come undone.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Thank you for your incredibly generous contribution to our IndieGoGo campaign to help fund our 6th Season!
As our 60-Day Fundraising campaign came to a close, everyone on the Happy Medium Theatre Company team had a moment to sit, relax and reflect on how lucky we are for having such a supportive fan base. Thank you! We love producing theatre, there’s no way we would commit the amount of blood, sweat and tears currently collected on the floor of the Factory Theater if we didn’t.
But now we know that you love it too!
At close of our campaign, we didn’t just meet our goal, we exceeded it by $500! Thank You! We hope that all of you how long even a little bit of pocket change goes in the fringe theatre scene. In this time of transition and change, a funding boost of $7,179 will allow HMT to continue to provide the high quality, kick-ass theatre that you have all come to know and love. Thank You!
With your support, we are now reared and ready to rock our Sixth Season out of this world. ‘Language of Angels’, directed by Lizette Morris, opens on October 23rd and will be the final show in the Factory theater as we know it – and you can find more info regarding tickets here.
So once more, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We could not be more grateful for your support!
