Reno, NV.  The Christmas season brings us Ham for the Holidays directed by Joe Atack and written by Shad Willingham.  Ham For The Holidays is a hilarious farce set in a fictional town in Georgia, Hamlin. It is Christmas Eve 1939 and the local radio station WHAM (pronounced W-HAM) has a special one-off performance planned for Christmas. WHAM has gathered it’s radio actors together and with the Orson Welles on his way to the station to join the cast for the performance there is great excitement all-round. Unfortunately Georgia has been hit with a freak snowstorm and neither Orson Welles, nor the script for the performance, arrive. “Ham for the Holidays” is a warm-hearted homage to traditional farce with its broad character sketches and pratfalls, and just the lightest tip of the hat to the screwball comedies of the 1930s.

Reno, NV.  Opening Brüka Theatre’s 2014/2015 season our 22nd year in downtown Reno on September 12, 2014, Rod Hearn directs Gruesome Playground Injuries, by Pulitzer wait-listed young playwright Rajiv Joseph.  It is a darkly comic play about the 30-year relationship between Kayleen and Doug, who never quite get it together in any normal, traditional sense.  When they yearn to touch each other, it's platonic, often pressing a fresh, gaping wound or empty eye socket.  Physical suffering, for these two damaged souls, is much more intimate.  Starring Stacy Johnson and Wesley Gaines McNair.
