Feb. 14-15, the Dock Street Project will present Anti-Climax: The Bed and Bar Plays at New Haven's Long Wharf Theatre. The four-show stand will feature four one-act plays, including A Little Class by Matthew Ethan Davis, directed by Charles Armesto. The play concerns "A love triangle in which a gay graduate student, obsessed with his Marxist journalism professor, jeopardizes his relationship with his lover."
The other works are 1981's Lynette at 3 AM, a rare playwriting effort by actress Jane Alexander; Theresa Rebeck's 1991 work Big Mistake; and Abortive, a radio play by Caryl Churchill from 1971.
The theme of the evening, said a spokesman, is "anti-Valentine's Day."
Tickets are $10. The Long Wharf Theatre, Stage II, is located at 222 Sargent Drive, New Haven, CT. For information, call 203-776-2683 Ext. 256.
