One Night Only

One Night Only: A 24-hour play festival that showcased new plays by local Upper Valley Artists.

These plays were fully created (written, rehearsed, and performed) in just 24 hours! Our writers started working the night before, followed by the actors, directors, and stage crew rehearsing first thing that morning-about 12 hours before the curtain went up.

The magic of these 24 hour plays were truly spectacular to witness!

The Silenced Lyre

A period piece romantic tragedy adapted from Alexander Pushkin's beloved novel  'Eugene Onegin', this beautiful tale of love, friendship, jealousy, and pride has long resonated with audiences worldwide. When the conceited Eugene spurns the affections of the young and innocent Tatyana, he sets in motion a chain of events that results in a tragic end. Heightened drama pervades, with elegant ballroom dances, passionate letters and meetings, fiery confrontations, and a heart-stopping duel as highlights of the show. A sweeping original musical score and beautiful choreography enhance the proceedings. Performed by an eight-member orchestra and a talented cast of nineteen members.
