Between the Years Special

The Mystery of Irma Vep

August 14 – September 14

Playhouse Downtown

In the tradition of the Greater Tuna series, two actors rush through a series of quick changes, accents and genders to bring you this fast-paced farce. Set on the dark moors in England’s Victorian era, this hilarious comedy was first staged by New York’s Theatre of The Ridiculous and stars Scott Treadway and Preston Dyar.

Content Advisory – 

The play takes place in a deserted house on the moors of England and it is a hysterical farce, VERY thinly disguised as gothic horror story. The humor is farcical and quick-paced. There is no real profanity in the show, but the script is laced with double entendre and winks toward “the serious theatah.”

But along the way he must confront the most feared man in Europe, Cardinal Richelieu his henchman Rochefort, and the most dangerous foe of all, the infamous Countess de Winter who will stop at nothing to exact her revenge. This is an exciting and daring adventure for the whole family. 

Fall is Here in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

This the time of year to visit our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and enjoy the height of fall color. This past weekend was peak color in the highest elevations (4500+ ft).  At mid-elevation from 2500-4500 feet, the colors are just as brilliant although the individual species change. Prominent trees include tulip poplar (yellow), black birch (yellow), hickory species (red), sourwood (red), flowering dogwood (red), blackgum (scarlet) and numerous oaks (reds, yellow, scarlet). Evergreen trees such as pitch pine, table mountain pine and white pine as well as the abundant great rhododendron provide a green carpet interspersed with the deciduous trees. Prominent flowering species include many aster and goldenrod species, grass-leaved golden-aster, as well as a few sunflowers.
