    Rumors

    The play starts with Ken Gorman and his wife, Chris Gorman, at the 10th anniversary party of Charlie Brock, the Deputy Mayor of New York, and his wife, Myra. Unfortunately, things are not going quite to plan. All the kitchen staff are gone, Myra is missing, and Charlie has shot himself in the head. Chris calls Charlie’s doctor, but before Chris can tell him what has happened, Ken dictates that she not inform the doctor of anything that has happened, for the bullet only went through Charlie’s ear lobe.

    The Quest for Don Quixote

    Tahlequah Community Playhouse, Inc. will present “The Quest for Don Quixote” written by Mark Brown, directed by Juliet Colyer, November 11-13, and 18-20, 2022. Playwright Ben Elsenberg sits in a Starbucks on the eve of the first rehearsal of his stage adaptation of Don Quixote. There’s only one problem–he hasn’t written it. He hasn’t written anything in years, and his status as wunderkind playwright is quickly fading to has-been hack. His agent is apoplectic, the producer’s advance is long since spent and adapting a thousand page Renaissance adventure is beginning to feel a bit like tilting at windmills. But then-whether from a stroke of genius or near-lethal dose of caffeine…
