Stone Arch Players 2018-19 Season
The Nightmare Written by Jean Lee Latham
Directed by Thiry Olbrich
In a gloomy old mansion that overhangs a cliff, Perry Wallace waits for the death of his father-in-law. Perry's haughty, bitter wife, Edith, fights desperately to keep the old man alive. Not because she loves him; just because she hopes she can get him to change his will. Perry knows it leaves everything to the old man's one grandchild, Marilyn Fleming. But Percy has plans. He'll bring Marilyn to the side of her dying grandfather; he'll trick her into signing a will that leaves everything to him! Then he'll force her to repeat the pattern of her mother's mysterious death. So Marilyn comes; she talks with the dying man, and is horrified when he warns her that she isn't safe in the house. She must escape. When she awakens after a strange sleep, the funeral is over, the servants are gone, and she is alone with the two who plot her death. The man she loves comes; but in order to save him, Marilyn scorns him and quarrels with him, so that he leaves in a rage. Her last hope is gone. The rising terror of the final minutes surpasses all that has gone before.

The Folks Next Door by John R. Carroll
Directed by Katye Long
Chet Roberts has had it. He's tired of dirty air, crime in the streets and pollution under his nose in short, everyday living in the city. He moves his family to a deserted California beach city to start a new life as a writer. Imagine his alarm when he learns the only house in the area has been bought by the President as a summer White House. There goes Chet's peace, quiet and yes, the neighborhood. Chet battles with the Secret Service, nosy tourists and his family and a certain dictator from "over there." Incidents pitting the common man against red tape are hilarious. When the summer ends and the President and his entourage leave, Chet realizes the experience will make a great novel.

Fridays Written by Andrew Johns
Directed by Colette Hartzler
"Fridays" centers around a nickel-dime poker game that has taken place in George Herrick's basement game room every Friday night for years. The number of regulars has dwindled to three. Holly, “one of the guys,” is lifelong bachelor who lives for the weekly poker session. In dialogue, Holly is presented as an irascible bully with whom few of George's friends are willing to play; the game badly needs some new blood, just as long as it doesn't belong to a woman!! A look at relationships, loss, life and the change all that means for even the most resistant of people.
