by Tennessee Williams, Robert Anderson, David Ives, Christopher Durang, Gregory Hischak.

Comedy tonight! Christopher Durangʼs “Mrs. Sorkin” opens this evening of short plays by major and emerging figures in American theatre. You will laugh at Tennessee Williamsʼ rollicking “A Perfect Analysis Given By A Parrot,” and bittersweet “The Lady of Larkspur Lotion”; Robert Andersonʼs gentle “Iʼm Herbert”; David Ivesʼ clever “The Sure Thing” and “The Philadelphia”; and Gregory Hischakʼs absurdly comic “Hygiene.”

MTGʼs Shorts on the 2nd Floor will leave you smiling.

The Bricks Theatre continues to bring their irreverent and thought-provoking style of theatre to Madison, WI audiences this spring with their latest offering, the world premiere of Oatesland, will feature the talents of four of Madison’s strongest veteran stage performers: Jessica Jane Witham, Jake Penner, John Jajewski, and Jordan Peterson. David Pausch, co-founder and producer of The Bricks, will direct the project. The play is set in the brutal environment of a rundown, claustrophobic Antarctic military station, where three U.S. soldiers must battle the extreme elements and close quarters in an endeavor to cohabitate and complete their vague mission. As tensions mount and weather conditions worsen, a mysterious figure arrives out of the cold that will change their lives forever. Oatesland masterfully blends visceral psychological drama with the fascinating history of Antarctic exploration in an experience that is sure to make for a one of a kind theatrical experience that has become synonymous with Bricks Theatre productions.

Local playwright, Sam White, delivers an audience experience that is seldom seen on stage, and has written one of the most intriguing plays we have ever read, filled with an atmosphere that will surely have audiences talking for a long time.

By Jez Butterworth

Directed By Jeff Knupp

On St. George's Day, the morning of the local county fair Johnny "Rooster" Byron, local waster and modern day Pied Piper, is a wanted man. The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son, Marky wants his dad to take him to the fair, Troy Whitworth wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol. The play makes frequent allusions to Blake's eponymous poem from which its title is derived.
