I Ought To Be In Pictures
Join Artists’ Collaborative Theatre in a celebration of the unmatched legacy of beloved playwright Neil Simon with the production of one of his finest works.  I Ought To Be In Pictures is a father-daughter story filled Simon’s gift for making us laugh till we cry.  But this tale is also rich with hard-earned wisdom and the hope of self-forgiveness.

The Best of Ida 
Ida Leclair, “the funniest woman in Maine. As always, Ida strikes the perfect balance between humorous and heartfelt. This girl is whip-smart yet down to earth. Spending time with Ida is like talking to an old friend – one with plenty of experience and a wicked good sense of humor!

Judgement Day
David Kaye and Roland Goodbody team up to bring to the stage two compelling stories.  In “A Walk with Marlene” Roland takes us through the streets of Berlin in search of Dietrich’s grave.  In “The Haber Conundrum” David calls to the stand Fritz Haber, German chemist and nobel laureate, to answer for a most conflicted life.
