Current Season

Providence Mainstage Season

by Ira Levin

In this well-known mystery thriller, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway hits, is struggling to overcome a “dry” spell which has resulted in a series of box office flops.  A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a remarkable script from a student which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway juggernaut.  Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer assistance to the student in exchange for co-credit.  But is that really his plan?  Suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

The Minutes
by Tracy Letts

In this scathing new comedy-drama, a town’s proud history, the legend of a local hero, and the coveted privilege of reserved parking become battle grounds in small-town politics and real-world power. Nothing is sacred during this town council meeting. This razor-sharp comedy turns from hilarious to chilling as petty policy matters give way to the truth roiling just beneath the surface of this town’s dubious history. The Minutes is both a political comedy and a wicked, methodically plotted horror show, that will keep you riveted to the very end.
