This hilarious "killer" comedy features three distinct monologues of revenge, blackmail, money, jealousy, justice, and murder. Each vignette depicts the desperate passion, old wounds, and cold calculations that intersect in the sun-drenched world of The Riddle Key Luxury Retirement Village in Florida. Join us for these cat-and-mouse mysterys featuring culprits who try to commit the perfect crime, but get tripped up along the way. MURDERERS is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

“..a very funny comedy with some biting satire and terrific storytelling.”—Talkin’ Broadway

Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts Acting Studio

In this critically acclaimed tragicomedy, a chipper and chatty woman – buried to the waist, and seemingly oblivious to her predicament – prattles on as her taciturn husband hovers nearby. In HAPPY DAYS, Samuel Beckett pursues his relentless search for the meaning of existence, probing the tenuous relationships that bind one person to another, and each to the universe, to time past and time present. HAPPY DAYS is presented through special arrngement with Concord Theatricals.

"Happy Days remains one of the most unsettling and unforgettable plays in the modern canon.” – The New York Times

“An unsettling glimpse into the existential abyss... In Happy Days, Beckett presents one of his most powerful emblems of the trap that human life can become.” – The New York Times

NOTE: Seating for HAPPY DAYS is limited.
