What value does the truth hold? Alceste fervently believes that honesty is always the best policy, but finds that not everyone agrees with him – including the woman he loves. This comedy of manners from 17th-century French playwright Moliere explores still-timely issues relating to truth, fidelity, and hypocrisy. Can an honest man find love and happiness in a world in which lying is expected, if not necessarily admired?

On Baile's Strand

On Baile's Strand

by W. B. Yeats 
Directed by Barry Cavin

The FGCU Theater program presents the filmed version of On Baile's Strand

Yeats’ poetic play uses ancient Celtic myths and traditional lore to explore all the meanings of passion, familial bonds, political ambition, and the futile drive to control nature.  

Cuchulain, a great warrior king, reluctantly swears loyalty to King Conchobar in an effort to consolidate a defense against a common enemy, Queen Aoife, with whom Cuchulain had once had a passionate affair. During the ceremony to make official the agreement between Cuchulain and Conchobar, a young stranger appears and requests to battle Cuchulain. The resulting fight drives Cuchulain to wage war against the waves of the ocean.

Every town has its secrets, but what happens when the souls of departed residents return to reveal them? In 1915, Edgar Lee Masters published a collection of free-verse first-person autobiographical epitaph poems expressing the lives, the grievances, and the manner of death of over two-hundred fictional residents of an imaginary town called Spoon River. Join FGCU's Creating New Theatre class for their devised work Stories of Spoon River based on and including poems from Masters’ Spoon River Anthology.
