The Tavern stage becomes small town America this spring. Our stage set will be stripped bare to bring the love story of George and Emily to life including all of the characters in their lives ... in our lives ... in our town. Narrated by Artistic Director Jeff Watkins as Wilder's Stage Manager, The Tavern's production of this modern classic is sure to warm your heart, to bring you to smile, and to make your eyes glisten.
Join the cast and crew members for a lively Question and Answer session on Sunday April 12 after the show!

Bardometer RatingHow difficult is this Shakespearean play to grasp? On a scale of 1 to 10.
What does rating this mean?
These are plays you may have read in high school or college. The plot is fairly uncomplicated, though some of the themes may be dense or dark. These plays may include supernatural elements, straight-forward politics, historical content or religious content. (In these cases, we offer a synopsis with important historical or contextual explanations which you may read in the Playbill before the show.) In these plays, there may also be bawdy language and certain adult situations, and the language may be hard to follow for a first-timer.
We recommend this type of play to High School and College Students, casual theatre-goers, people who like mainstream films and reading “The Onion”, and Shakespeare lovers who enjoy delving into the Elizabethan world.
How to prepare for seeing this kind of play: You may wish to read the synopsis we provide (and maybe your notes from Literature Class). Or simply do a small amount of internet research. No worries – you won’t get lost.
