Nora's Playhouse

The Nora Salon is BACK on Friday, September 21st with “The Great Forgotten”

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

Our next gathering of The Nora Salon is Friday, September 21! We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of an excerpt from Kacie and Karen Devaney’s two-act play: The Great Forgotten.

WWI nurses

In 1917, Elizabeth is one of the first registered nurses to offer her services in France when the United States finally enters World War I. Her sister Celia, an artist at heart, never shies away from adventure, so she signs up as a volunteer to aide in the Great War, tagging along with Elizabeth for what she imagines will be an exciting experience. Together with their fellow nurses, the sisters are faced with the gruesome realities of trench warfare as they struggle to save the thousands of wounded soldiers who pass through base hospital 21. Through friendship, tears, and laughter, these unsung heroes perform extraordinary acts of courage, even when it means risking their own lives.

With the World War I centennial just around the corner on November 11th, we hope you will join us for the premiere reading of this new, completely revised version of The Great Forgotten by mother-daughter playwrighting team Kacie and Karen Devaney.

Join us for The Nora Salon: “The Unthinkable” on 6/11

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

Our next gathering of The Nora Salon is Monday, June 11! We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Eve Lederman’s full length play: The Unthinkable.

The Unthinkable

The Unthinkable depicts one afternoon in a hospital room in a death-defying traumedy revealing family secrets. Backs are turned and accusations hurled as the Rosens come together and fall apart, bound by heartbreak and humor.

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.
