Our 2018/2019 Season


“I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but, like everybody else, it must be in my own way.”

We open our season with the regional premiere of Kate Hamill’s highly acclaimed adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel. It’s an irresistible love story, set amidst the background of 18th century gossiping, and infused with Merely Players’ bold theatrical inventiveness and creativity. To add to the fun, this delightful caper is a classic Merely Players Found Space production, staged at the Old Fort Historic Library in Hesperus. On both Fridays and Saturdays, a fascinating pre-show walk and talk about the history of the Old Fort, led by local history buff and Hesperus native Roy Horvath, is included in your ticket price. The talk begins at 6:20. Subscribers will receive more information as the date nears, but make your date selection now. Seating for this show is limited; becoming a season subscriber ensures that you will get tickets. A frothy confection for all ages.

“I want to say to you: doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty.”

Local favorites Maureen May and Jason Lythgoe star in John Patrick Shanley’s stunning play, which won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play in 2005. Set against the backdrop of a 1960s America in the midst of political and social change, a progressive young priest’s conduct comes under question by a nun whose beliefs are deeply rooted in tradition. This powerful piece takes audiences on a remarkable journey of authority, suspicion, change, religion and - of course - Doubt.
