Tapas New Short Play Festival

Pegasus Theater Company, The Masonic Lodge, Guerneville

Now in its 12th year, Pegasus Theater Company’s festival of short plays features a medley of dramatic situations, like a dedicated but woefully underpaid community college professor; a conniving nephew manipulating his elderly aunt; a most unusual creation story; and vigilante enforcement of handicap parking rules.

Time Stands Still

Sept. 20 - Oct. 6

Raven Performing Arts Theater, Healdsburg

Sarah and James, a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent, try to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, but when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.

The Raven presents Time Stands Still and Church & State as a Mini-Rep. The two plays run on alternate days Sept. 20 through Oct. 7. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

 

Church & State

Sept. 21 - Oct. 7

Raven Performing Arts Theater, Healdsburg

In the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. Senator running for re-election candidly questions his belief in God to a blogger, perhaps crushing his re-election hopes. There are no easy answers in this topical look at gun violence that is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
