Honest Theatre closed its inaugural season with John Kolvenbach’s LOVE SONG. This dark romantic comedy revolves around Beane, a depressive recluse, his uptight sister Joan, and her husband Harry, whose lives all change when a beautiful stranger breaks in to Beane’s apartment. This quirky tale evokes the idea that love may be an illusion, but its an illusion that can generate its own reality.
‘The sweet surprise of John Kolvenbach's play "Love Song" is its gentle touch. Instead of hitting auds over the head with earnest metaphysical musings, Kolvenbach works up his ideas of realism and reality, habit and hope, into a quirky romantic comedy.’ -Variety
This production starred Honest Theatre company members Sharon Biermann, Beka Bortot, Zachary Bortot, Sean Cowan, and Ashley Manning-O'Dell and was directed by Britain Willcock.

Honest Theatre opened its first season with Theresa Rebeck’s Spike Heels. This play is a provocative, razor sharp comedy that explores the power play between the sexes, ruthless ambition and the possibility of a four sided love triangle. A lusty, street-smart secretary from the Bronx; a fastidious university professor; a prudish, upper crust rich girl; and a sleazy criminal defense lawyer battle their way through the consequences of their morally ambiguous choices in this contemporary take on the Pygmalion classic.
This show starred Whitney Rappana, Britain Willcock, Zachary Bortot, and Kelly Helgeson. Directed by Kelly Levander.
