CAVORT PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCES

CAVORT participants will see three world-premiere Humana Festival of New American Play productions as part of their registration package.  Actors Theatre houses three performance spaces under one roof, so CAVORT guests will find it easy to navigate among the theatres.  On Sunday, CAVORT registrants will see the opening night performance of Wellesley Girl and share in the celebration in the Sarah Shallenberger Brown Lobby immediately following the show.

Residence

by Laura Jacqmin

directed by Hal Brooks

Bingham Theatre

New mom Maggie returns to her medical sales job, checking into an extended-stay hotel in Arizona as she pursues the commission that will get her out of debt and back on track. When she befriends two hotel employees intent on making her visit a five-star experience, they discover that their lives are all on similarly shaky ground. A funny and sharply observed play about hanging on when you’re at the end of your rope, and the times when letting go might be the most responsible thing to do.

This Random World

by Steven Dietz

directed by Meredith McDonough

Bingham Theatre

We want to believe that serendipity brings us together, but is that just a myth? Mining the comedy of missed connections, This Random World asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.

Wellesley Girl

by Brendan Pelsue

directed by Lee Sunday Evans

Pamela Brown Theatre

It’s 2465. American politics haven’t changed much. Except that “America” is now only a handful of New England towns in a walled-in citadel. When an unidentified army encamps at the border, Congress struggles to move beyond personal agendas and petty bickering over procedure to decide the nation’s fate. With canny humor and wicked intelligence, Wellesley Girl exposes an unsettling truth: sometimes all you can do is flip a coin and hope that history proves you right.
