Nora's Playhouse

The Nora Tasting Salon: all of the littlest things is May 18th!

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

Co-hosted by Simple Brewing Company and Nora’s Playhouse, the next gathering of The Nora Salon is Friday, May 18, and features a beer tasting.

Join us as we drink beer, engage in friendly conversation, give insightful feedback, and enjoy an informal reading of Lauren D’Errico’s one-act play:

all of the littlest things.

June had a strange relationship with a high school teacher that she doesn’t quite understand — and even years later, the cubicle of her mind dedicated to figuring that experience out is cluttered with the paperwork. Surrounded by these pages, manifestations of June from Then and Now work to make order amidst the endless piles of thoughts, confusion, and grief.

The Nora Salon: La Fonda is April 13th!

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

Our next gathering of The Nora Salon is Friday, April 13 and we are excited to be featuring the latest piece by friend of Nora’s, Suzanne Trauth (Francoise, Rehearsing Desire).

We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Suzanne Trauth’s full length play: La Fonda.

It’s 1945 in the bar of the La Fonda Hotel, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, thirty miles from Los Alamos. People from the town meet to drink, gossip, and trade theories about the activity on the Hill, where the scientists of the Manhattan Project are developing the atom bomb. It is a moment in history when many in this desert town have secrets. Who can be trusted? The bartender? The traveling businessman? The German-born operator of a rooming house? Not to mention the presence of Russian spies… In the midst of the political turmoil, a young Los Alamos engineer falls in love and, torn by a battle between his patriotism and his conscience, is forced to confront a future that might threaten his family.

The Nora Salon: “Never Not Once” is March 23rd!

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

The next gathering of our monthly reading series, The Nora Salon, is Friday, March 23rd. We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Carey Crim’s play: Never Not Once.

Eleanor, a biology major at Princeton, brings her boyfriend Rob home to meet her two (not perfect but still pretty excellent moms). While there, she lets them know that she has hired a private investigator to help her find her biological father. She says, as a scientist, she is curious about her genetics. But it’s evident she might also just want to meet her dad. Nadine, her non-biological mom thinks it’s a great idea, partly because she had a deep and wonderful relationship with her own father. Allison, Eleanor’s biological mom is less enthusiastic, insisting that Eleanor’s father, a one night stand in college whose name Allison doesn’t remember, never even knew she existed. Nadine secretly gives Allison the name Doug. This information sends Eleanor on a journey to an unexpected and explosive answer to the question “Where do I come from?” The fallout and complications from this revelation force the whole family–and Doug–to confront the past in order to have any hope of moving on to a better future.
