Daytime drama -- well, dark comedy

27_wagons Looking for something different to do on this long holiday weekend? The Pinecrest Repertory Theatre Company is unveiling its second double bill of short plays:  Tennessee Williams' 27 Wagons Full of Cotton and A.R. Gurney's The Golden Fleece.

The 1946 Williams play is about a cotton gin owner who torches his rival's business, only to have the other man seduce his wife (Ambar Aranaga and Paul Homza, in photo at right, are in that cast).  In Gurney's dark 1966 comedy about hero worship, a couple claims to be in contact with Jason and Medea. Featured in the two plays are actors Laura Alvarado, Daniel Lugo, Chris Perez, Aranaga and Homza.

Pinecrest Rep performs outside in the Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens, 11000 Red Rd., Pinecrest -- so wear cool clothing!  Performances are at 4:30 every Saturday and Sunday through June 15.  Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students, seniors and military personnel.  For information, phone 305-720-0811 or visit the theater web site.
