A play about a small town and the wide world. Rachel Bonds’ Five Mile Lake is a stunning new play by an astonishingly talented writer. With exquisite care, Bonds paints a moving portrait of a group of young people, yearning to make the right choices—and facing the choices they have already made—as they journey into their thirties in a rapidly transforming world. Directed by Emily Mann, Five Mile Lake continues McCarter’s tradition of introducing major new plays and writers to the American stage (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, The Convert, and Anna in the Tropics). Don’t miss this funny, tender, and heart-wrenching play about those who stay, and those who go away.

It is said that opposites attract. Pair a somewhat uptight classically trained musician with a young lyricist who’s a little bit more than "out there," and sparks just might fly. Add a script by comedy master Neil Simon to the mix, stir in music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Carole Bayer-Sager and musical theatre magic is bound to occur. Pierrot Productions rolls out this offbeat classic based on the real life story of Hamlisch and Sager.

The instructor will offer suggestions to each person individually during the session, then near the end of class time, the group will meet together to share their work and the day’s painting experience.
