“Screwtape” by John Forsyth / Directed by Dawn Farr

Screwtape, a senior devil from hell, has delegated some authority to a junior fiend, Wormwood, whose assignment is to seize the soul of a very human and lovable young man. This might be called a devilish dramatic contest with high-level meaning thrashed out in terms of brilliant low-level comedy. The rather charming Wormwood is being critically supervised in this, his first case, by that extraordinary devil, Screwtape. Advice from this old hand from hell is devastatingly perceptive of human foibles and, despite the love of a wonderful young girl, our young man is in terrible danger. It’s really a close decision and, in a dazzling resolution, we all learn something important about hell, heaven, religion and humanity.

“Strange Snow” by Steve Metcalfe /Directed by Jeanne Skattum

“Strange Snow” is a drama about the aftermath of war. It is a homecoming play dealing with two soldiers who, having suffered an ordeal by fire, are trying to come to terms with their demons.

Together they confront the memories of their shared trauma and the loss to each.
