Bonnie & Clyde

Written by Adam Peck
Directed by Mark Jackson

People you love are not replaceable.
Over one feverish night in an unnamed southern town, a mythic couple comes to terms with their own mortality. With humor, desperation and tenderness, these icons are made human again, resolving their issues and getting their affairs in order. This potent blend of romance and violence echoes the power of the ancient Greeks. Based on a true story.

August 27 – September 29

Beowulf Alley Theatre- Presents PARALLEL LIVES by Kathy Najimy & Mo Gaffney

Beowulf Alley Theatre- Presents PARALLEL LIVES
By Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney
Beowulf Alley Theatre Company presents Parallel Lives by Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney August 9th through the 25th, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pmand Sunday at 2:30pm at Beowulf Alley Theatre, 11 S. 6thAve in downtown Tucson. Tickets are $20, $18 for seniors, teachers, and military. Student tickets are $10 with current I.D.

“Parallel Lives” is a wickedly hilarious look at women, relationships, and the quirks of our modern lives. Originally written and performed by Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney, this production will star Lisa Mae Roether and Martie van der Voort playing a madcap array of characters.

From two supreme beings who gleefully create the world (and in so doing kick off the battle of the sexes), to a support group for Disney moms, to a pair of little old ladies who go back to college to major in Women’s Studies because “we’ve got the prerequisites for this course—We’re WOMEN!” Parallel Lives touches on family, religion, sex, therapy, fairy tales, and womanhood in the most uproarious way.

For more information or tickets, please contact Michael Fenlason at 520.882.0555 or emailthetare@beowulfalley.org.

Coming soon! Samantha Cormier in Fifty Shades of Red: A Musical Review!
