Wayward Actors will persent six shows for the upcoming season, which begins with An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein (September), followed by Rehearsal for Murder (December), Amateurs (February 2011), and all three parts of Torch Song Trilogy (June-July 2011).
An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein will open the season in the Mex Theater at the Kentucky Center for the Arts, located at 501 West Main Street in downtown Louisville. The production wil feature unrelated sketches created by Silverstein, including Wash and Dry, about a person realizing the laundry is not done, Going Once, where a person tries to auction herself off, and Thinking Up a New Name for the Act.
Performances will take place on September 3, 4, 10, and 11 at 8 p.m. A matinee show will take place on September 12 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $16 per person and can be purchased at the Kentucky Center box office, Kentucky Center website, or by phone at 502-584-7777.
Following Silverstein will be the murder mystery Rehearsal for Murder in December. Actors look over a production and soon realize connections between it and a murder of the playwright's fiancee. Richard Levinson and William Link created the production, and D.D. Brooke adapted it for the stage.
Amateurs will follow in February 2011. The production features Dorothy and her husband, after opening night of a musical, hosting friends and actors. One person gets a heart attack and is sent to the hospital. He leaves his unfinished review, which panned the show, behind.
The Torch Song Trilogy will conclude the season, which each part taking place in consecutive weeks in June and July 2011. Each act features some part of Arnold's life. Arnold sees Alan, who has issues with his bisexuality. The second act deals with Arnold and Alan settling down together and attempting to adopt a child. The final act shows Arnold as a single father supporting his gay teenager.
