Aris Theatre Presents

Arís is proud to present Woman and Scarecrow by award-winning contemporary Irish playwright Marina Carr.  

In bed, a woman is dying before her time, her mind and body worn out. In the wardrobe, something lurks. In the face of her death she threshes out her life’s truths, sparring with a ridiculous aunt, a cheating husband, and a slippery alter ego.

Sam Marlow of the London Times calls this play “An extraordinary brew, bittersweet and totally intoxicating.”

Directed by John Ammerman, the cast features Elisa Carlson, Kelly O’Neal, Robert Shaw-Smith, and Amanda Taylor Brooks.

Theatrical Outfit to Open its 2019/2020 Season With 

August 27 - September 29

One cast. Two essential American stories.

Considered by many to be the greatest American play ever, Our Town depicts the town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager character and performed with minimal props and sets, this classic chronicles the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in theatre – die.

In 1998, a university student named Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, beaten, and tied to a prairie fence outside Laramie, Wyoming. When he died days later, the world learned Shepard was targeted because he was gay. A breathtaking collage of the local residents, The Laramie Project is virtuously determined to find the light in an event of harrowing darkness and exposes the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

“Laramie is a latter-day Grover’s Corners, a cozy place where everyone appears to know everyone else’s business and actually finds comfort in this. The Laramie Project is Our Town with a question mark, as in, ‘Could this be our town? It can’t happen here,’ followed immediately by ‘And yet it has.'”
