PA's Bristol Riverside Theatre Goes From Cliffhanger to Greek Romp in 2004-05

News   PA's Bristol Riverside Theatre Goes From Cliffhanger to Greek Romp in 2004-05 Bristol Riverside Theatre, the Equity company in Bristol, Pennsylvania in the southeastern corner of Bucks County, has announced a five-show 2004-05 season, opening with James Yaffe's Cliffhanger.

The play that Variety called a cross between On Golden Pond and Deathtrap runs Oct. 12-31. In it, "a professor of philosophy at a small college is looking forward to being appointed to an endowed chair so he and his wife can enjoy their 'golden years' with honor and dignity...but their plans are given a rude jolt when his successor, a ruthlessly ambitious and vindictive woman, informs him that she is not recommending him – an act of such calculated cruelty that the usually gentle professor grabs a bust of Socrates and strikes her a fatal blow. Then, most unexpectedly…a foolproof way to dispose of the body!" The season will also include Philip Barry's romantic play about class, Holiday, Nov. 30-Dec. 19; Talley's Folly by Lanford Wilson, Jan. 25, 2005-Feb. 13, 2005; Fences by August Wilson March 15, 2005 April 3, 2005; the Greek-gods musical comedy Olympus On My Mind, book and lyrics by Barry Harman, music by Grant Sturiale, May 3-22, 2005.
