Announcing our final show of the season,
Webster's Bitch by Jacqueline Bircher!

Fresh off our critically acclaimed and sold-out production of Cry It Out, we're excited to announce the final production of our 2023-24 season, Webster’s Bitch, written by Jacqueline Bircher and co-directed by company members Margaret Mann and John Watson.

"If you are fascinated by words and writing, you will be talking and thinking about this play days later." 

— Karen Isaacs, Berkshire Fine Arts

When their Editor-in-Chief gets caught using some rather colorful profanity, the employees of Webster's Dictionary find themselves at the center of an internet uprising over gender and obscenity in the age of social media. As office politics collide with ambition, morality, and lexicography, the future of the English language hangs in the balance. Webster’s Bitch is a play about vulgar words and the people who define them.

In a departure for us, we're excited to announce that this production features four visiting artists making their first appearance on the NHTC Stage! The actors include Lisa DeAngelis (Ellie), Lillian Garcia (Joyce), Abby Klein (Gwen), and Gavin Whelan (Nick). Company member Ralph Buonocore (Frank) rounds out the cast.

Join us at the NHTC Stage in the back of EBM Vintage, 839 Chapel Street, New Haven
