Esther's Descendants

By Jan Levine Thal

Directed by Jan Levine Thal

"A ghost. Some gangsters. Roses."

Mother has died after years of alcoholism and dementia. But in the afterlife, she recovers. In fact, death suits the old psychopath, frustrated as she is that the living can't hear her. Her descendants have inherited a crumbling mansion, a swamp, and a bloody past. Can she guide them to brighter days -- and at what cost?

Laughter on the 23rd Floor

By Neil Simon

Directed by David Pausch

Kicking off Strollers 60th Season Retrospactacular!
"Laughter on the 23rd Floor" is inspired by the playwright's youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, with all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman "Max Prince".
