Live Music & Other Events


Patricia Neal Stage
World Premiere
A New Play by Catherine Rush & Adrian Blue
Directed by Adrian Blue

The world is inching toward the 20th century, but no one at the Chilmark General Store thinks much about mainland issues. Here, up-island on Martha’s Vineyard, the people are a world unto themselves. Almost every family has kin who are deaf-mute and every person in town speaks with their hands as well as their voices. Until one day an off-islander arrives and incites discord and division between good neighbors and lifelong friends. Performed simultaneously in American Sign Language and English, CHILMARK is based on the 2007 Playhouse production of THIS ISLAND ALONE.

Directed by MJ Bruder Munafo

Based on a 2005 scandal in the world of children’s television known as “Bustergate”, DUSTY AND THE BIG BAD WORLD is a darkly funny, no-holds-barred yet even-handed look at PBS, government censorship, gay marriage, and what it takes to ultimately step up and fight for what you believe in.

Been There, Still There

Patricia Neal Stage

Second City Main Stage alums Bruce Jarchow (Parks and Recreation / Boss / Seinfeld / Ghost) and Nancy McCabe-Kelly (web series Teachers as seen on the Onion Channel / Welcome! To Prison / TBS Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs) are bringing their highly praised show BEEN THERE, STILL THERE to the Playhouse for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

The show follows a baby boomer couple on a road trip to Wisconsin for a destination wedding. Along the way they ponder empty nest angst, becoming victims of both urban gentrification and illogical technology, and anything else that comes to mind, with the local radio and nostalgia of Wisconsin as their backdrop. Though this is a scripted show, each performance is slightly different as they expound, riff and allow themselves to go off script as the spirit (and audience) moves them.

Tickets $20 Adults, $15 Juniors (under 30)
