Three Productions Planned

For Square One’s 17th Season

STRATFORD — Executive Producer Barbara Cairney and Artistic Director Tom Holehan have announced that Square One Theatre’s 17th Anniversary Season (2006-07) will feature Match, a funny, poignant and suspenseful new play that will open the season on weekends, November 3 through November 18; Rounding Third, a charming, touching and delightful off-Broadway comedy to run February 2-17;and The Constant Wife, a brilliantly witty 1920s comedy, which will finish the season May 11-27.

When a mysterious couple arrives at the apartment of Tobi Powell, a legendary dancer and choreographer, it appears they are only there to interview him for a magazine feature. In Match it is soon evident, however, that their agenda is as multilayered as the life story that Tobi begins to tell them.

Funny, poignant and suspenseful, Stephen Belber’s recent Broadway hit will feature award-winning actor Pat Leo (QED) in the role of Tobi.

Rounding Third, which could have been ripped from the nation’s headlines, is a touchgin off-Broadway comedy that charts the tumultuous journey of two Little League coaches (played by Square One favorites Dan Arenovski and Daniel John Kelly) through an entire season, from their first tentative meeting to the climactic championship game. The story is a delightful charmer from Richard Dresser, the playwright of Square One’s previous crowd-pleaser, Wonderful World.

Square One Theatre will conclude its season with Somerset Maugham’s The Constant Wife. In a society where the rules are crystal clear, the beautiful Constance Middleton ignores them all. For her, a husband’s affairs are to be recognized, dealt with and confronted, but only when necessary. Her marriage is not a sacred institution but a contract, to be re-examined and, at times, renewed.

Performances for all shows are Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 for the first two weekends; the third (and final) weekend of each performance offers shows on Friday at 8, and Saturday at 4 (twilight matinees) and 8 pm.

All productions are directed by Tom Holehan and presented on the stage of the Stratford Theatre, 2422 Main Street in Stratford Center.

Season Subscriptions are currently on sale for  $40.
