CRVPT’s first show as resident company at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls is September 30 at 7:30 pm. One night only. The name of the show is The Orchids.


The Orchids is a black comedy about two young people who get ensnared in a system that would see them as objects of commerce.  Iris is starting her ‘next life’ as a worker in a sextaurant where she is tormented by her boss and his waitress accomplice.  Lief responds to her cry of help during which time it is discovered by the tormentors that Lief contains a universal link.  This may be the most desirable item so far!  He is hounded and acted upon.  This play is about how Iris and Lief find their power, and a positive link to the world that exists beyond the physical realm.




Come to Laughing Dog Bikes in Amherst, MA Saturday June 11th.  The show starts at 7pm.  Will there be beer?  Good questions; check the updates for the answer.

Shows:  Pleased For Us To Meet You a play by John Sieracki and Wilson Yerxa.

Freedonia a play by Greg Purcell.

Next Stop The Big City a video by Ish Klein inspired by the musical Oklahoma!

and Fire Brigade  a play by Wilson Yerxa.

AND MORE!  MUCH MUCH MORE!  (please share this post with interested parties)
