A World Premiere by Joseph Zettelmaier
Directed by Hayley Rice
Featuring Artistic Associate Heather Chrisler
Previews: September 30 – October 2

From the pen of Joseph Zettelmaier, who brought you The Gravedigger and Dr. Seward’s Dracula, comes another eerie and suspenseful tale. 100 years after the death of Victor Frankenstein, noted scientist Maria von Moos decides to excavate a ruined castle deep in the Geneva woods. In her search to uncover one mad-man’s secrets, she makes a startling discovery that will take us from the Swiss Alps to Vystario’s Menagerie of the Macabre and deep into the very soul of humanity. Inspired by the work of Mary Shelley, The Jigsaw Bride continues the electrifying legend.

Thrill to the first adventure of Tommy and Tuppence, Agatha Christie’s most dashing and romantic sleuths. In the wake of the Great War, England finds itself under attack from a Secret Council of its enemies, who are plotting to undermine and subvert one of the bastions of freedom. Can Tommy and Tuppence thread the maze of mysteries and murders to save Great Britain from the Bolsheviks? As they follow the trail of clues that lead all the way back to the sinking of the Lusitania, Tommy and Tuppence are drawn inexorably into a web of both love and deception, where they can trust no one but themselves.

OUR SUMMER STAGE
Last year we told you our plan was to return in the summer of 2021 with a new outdoor stage. However, for a variety of reasons, we have decided to extend the summer hiatus indefinitely. It is our belief that by focusing on our indoor mission of presenting the finest in theater, with an emphasis on literature-based works and a commitment to at least one world premiere production each season, we can strengthen First Folio and keep it strong and viable both artistically and economically well into the future.
