Bare Bones theater has been chosen for a WORLD PREMIERE of two plays by Frederick Stroppel – Performances Feb 1-3, 8-10, 14-17 (FINAL PERFORMANCE)

Stroppel to Appear in Person to sign his book “Lucky Me”, a biography of Shirley MacLaine’s daughter, Sachi Parker.

Dead Of Night is an evening of two suspense dramas by acclaimed playwright Frederick Stroppel, whose works have been favorites with Bare Bones audiences for over a decade. The first, “The Family Crypt” – with a cast of four women and one man – is set in a mausoleum where recently deceased members of the same family demonstrate that they are every bit as petty and mean-spirited after death as they were in life. The second, “The Hunter’s Moon” – with a cast of four men and one woman – takes place in a neighborhood bar, where a typical assortment of locals gather  for a night of fun and games on Halloween eve.  Typical, that is, until the night takes a horrific spin into the netherworld on the appearance of a darkly brooding and suspicious STRANGER.
