2 one- act plays by Don Nigro; directed by Robert Bock The Great Gromboolian Plain This long one act by the author of many popular plays is a love story that takes place on the grounds of a mental institution. A young girl who believes she can time travel meets a man who is not what he seems. Institutionalized by her sister to coerce her into revealing the location of their father's last poems, Dinah is protecting a deep secret. Magellan's attempts to understand her send him back to the turn of the last century, back to a place where a young man is forever asking a pretty nurse to dance to the carousel music. Specter On a rainy night a young professor drives on a twisted road through the woods near Princeton, swerves into a ditch to avoid a girl in a white dress, and finds himself stuck in his car with an outrageous and possibly demented young lady who might want to murder or make love to him, or both. This ancient ghost story is retold as a funny and frightening play about the relationship of desire to danger and the perils of relying on the kindness of strangers. March 8th through March 24th Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8pm; Sunday matinees at 2pm Tickets: $15 / $12 Members
