A comedy in three acts, this is the story of one woman’s faith in her grandson, even while facing the undeniable. Alejandro Casona was a Spanish-Argentinian playwright, considered one of the major talents of his era. This production was originally staged by our sister theater, Talk is Free Theater in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
While playing, in many ways, like a traditional British farce, Trees Die Standing Tall is a clever and funny narrative that belies its structure to explore themes and ideas that will stay with you long after you leave the theater. English translation by Lia Beeson.
Faith…What we hold in the absence of proof. We are dedicating our 2018 Season to an examination of “Faith.” Each of us holds a system of beliefs that guide our lives-our decisions, our values, our relationships and our self-esteem.
The 2018 season features five plays by five very different authors that highlight how faith has impacted the lives of the characters. Traditional faith in a higher power, or not, faith in oneself and the future, faith and its impact on families, faith in others and finally, the ultimate faith story updated to modern times. We’ve chosen two dramas, a farce, a historical biopic and a musical that you’re sure to find entertaining and out of the ordinary- hallmarks of the Bluff City Theater style. Our season runs from February to August 2018 and you can buy all five shows for a limited time for just $99!
