The Effect, Plates and Plays

Mar 25, 2018 Plates & Plays had nine members attend a recent play, "The Effect" by Lucy Prebbles at Dobama Theater. The plot turns on a clinical trial of a dopamine enhancing drug and the attraction between two young subjects. The playwright presented an intriguing look at the mind/body connection and what is "real" when chemically induced emotions are challenged. Clever use of technology ties the medical aspect of the clinical trial to the emotional roller coaster of the young subjects. Strong performances by the four characters in this double drama keep the audience intrigued.

Lost in Yonkers, Plates and Plays

Feb 5, 2018 Who knew it would be so delightful to get "Lost in Yonkers?" Neil Simon and a strong cast at Western Reserve Playhouse took us back to the 1940s to see a family face a challenging time and their own frailties. With humor and empathy, we experienced the adolescent woes of two boys left to the not so tender mercies of their domineering grandmother and their loving but emotionally damaged Aunt Bella. Exceptionally strong performances by the two leading ladies were the pivotal forces driving this gentle but powerful examination of a family struggling with their need for each other and the damage they can do. Twenty-three theater lovers enjoyed a good meal and lots of conversation before the show. Expand your theater horizons and join us!

Lunch at Burntwood Tavern Cuyahoga Falls and Doubt, A Parable in Canton

Jan 28, 2018 The second Plates & Plays began with lunch, at Burntwood Tavern Cuyahoga Falls and then moved to the 2:00 PM presentation of Doubt at the Players Guild Theater.

Young Frankenstein & Papa Joes

Oct 20, 2017 The first Plates & Plays experience was a rousing success with dinner at Papa Joe's in Merriman Valley. There was just a short drive from there to Weathervane Playhouse where an enthusiastic cast presented a delightful "Young Frankenstein". This was classic Mel Brooks comedy. The talented cast sang and danced their way through the making of a monster who of course proves himself a terrific guy in the end. Check the Plates & Plays schedule and join us.
