Wilder's Our Town meets Shaw's Saint Joan in this country-noir story about how friendship, loyalty, and willful denial prevent us from confronting the truth.
Setting: Summer in a small town on the cusp of the new millennium.
Our next season is about... community! Join us as we celebrate Rockville Little Theatre’s seventy years of community service. The season spotlights one community whose residents are falling in and out of love, another frayed by a mysterious disease, greed and a quest for justice, and finally one where a couple’s lives are turned upside down by underwear.
We hope you will help us celebrate our 70th Anniversary and enjoy all these entertaining shows...
