Blame It on Beckett
by Sam Bass Community Theatre

Feb. 21 - Mar. 17
Thursdays-Sundays

Heidi Bishop is a wide-eyed dramaturgy intern, eager to better American drama. What she encounters instead is an endless stream of bad scripts by desperate playwrights and an office filled with cynicism and turf battles, led by her bitterly hilarious boss Jim Foley. When Heidi's efforts to improve things run into unintended consequences, she is forced to confront idealism with reality to save her career, reputation, and relationships. Ideological opposites, Jim and Heidi soon lock tusks, and both are alternately championed and betrayed by Tina Fike, a famous playwright whom Jim has nurtured for years, and Mike Braschi, the theater's general manager, who has a yen for Heidi and scant ethical standards. It's ironical – and somehow oddly appropriate – that the problem could have been addressed by an astute dramaturg.

Directed by Christopher Lee Herod
