Expect the Unexpected…


It was Scottish poet Bobbie Burns who warned a little mouse (whose nest had been destroyed by a farmer’s plough) that the “best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men” often go awry.  That’s where Steinbeck got it, and it also suggests the thread that runs through our 2010-2011 season of plays and musicals.  In spite of all the planning that goes into the perfect wedding, the perfect family, or even the perfect suicide, stuff happens.  Dark family secrets get unveiled, phones get answered by the wrong people, and some folks get “Pucked” by an annoying fairy in the woods.  Whatever the plan, mouse or man, expect the unexpected!
