2013-2014 RHP Lineup
In a ramshackle garage miles from anywhere two cars, both of which were en route to a wedding, await repairs. One is Ron's, the ex husband of the bride to be, a man who missed his divorce and certainly doesn't want to miss his wife's wedding.. A brides- maid who is engaged to the best man owns the other, a Volvo. The shop's mechanic has never seen a Volvo, much less worked on one. This wonderful play has excellent scene and monologue material.

The Game’s Afoot
It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
A charming rogue contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb Indian talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the world series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. For one offense, the head nurse has him submit to shock treatment. The party is too horrid for her and she forces him to submit to a final correction: a frontal lobotomy.
