The brilliant comedy The Bear, by Chekhov, opens the evening, followed by Fourteen (a comedy) and Legend (a drama). An episode of Fawlty Towers is the final show of the evening, with award-winning actor Ryan Gander as Basil Fawlty.

Milne, a veteran one-act director, also plays a part in Fawlty Towers.

All tickets are $10 at the door. The shows run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, July 19–21 and July 26–28.

The box office and bar/concession open at 6:30 p.m. and the first show starts at 7:30 p.m.
