Alzheimer’s is taking Irene Radford further and further away from the small, rag-tag universe of people who inhabit her ever-devolving world. Navigating life with Alzheimer’s is a bizarre and endlessly changing process, one where everybody seems to get lost somehow. It’s a shifting world where the past becomes the present, the present becomes the past, and the future remains a terrifying mystery. Meanwhile, life must move on. Luvie, Irene’s daughter and primary caretaker, must pick up the pieces of her failed marriage. Irene’s in-home health worker, Dolly, must navigate the complex relationship with her adult son, Dylan. Leonard, Irene’s hairdresser, must grapple with the pain of saying goodbye. The further Irene drifts into memory, the closer these relative strangers become inextricably connected to one another.
Set in the American South, Distance explores questions of memory, mystery, identity, relationship and the vulnerability of change. It is a Southern drama full of humor, heart and ferocity
DISTANCE is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favorite.
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
