Our Winter Play

The Man Who Came To Dinner

by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman
directed by Stephen Houtz  

Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley are thrilled when Sheridan Whiteside, a brilliant, witty, and widely beloved radio celebrity, accepts their invitation to dinner on his tour through their little town of Mesalia, Ohio. However, when Whiteside injures himself by slipping on a piece of ice on their doorstep, and is confined to their home for the better part of December, the Stanleys are not so pleased with the change in their household. Brilliant, witty, and highly beloved he may be, but Whiteside has the behavior of a mischievous, sarcastic, entitled princeling, and he does not suffer fools. Demanding control of the entire household -- on top of the $150,000 for which he is suing Mr. Stanley -- in recompense for his injury, Whiteside commandeers the telephone, fills the library with penguins and cockroaches, and invites a band of paroled convicts over for lunch. And that's just the beginning!

2018 One Acts News

This year, Eden Prairie Players will be presenting two one acts productions. In the spring, we will present our inaugural Women's One Acts, featuring original works by female-identified playwrights. And in the fall, we will continue with our tradition of presenting A Collection of One Acts.

For the Women's One Acts, we narrowed 100 submissions down to 15 finalists, and held an open table reading on November 11 of those finalists, on which we based our final choices. We will be holding auditions on February 26 and 27.

For the Collection of One Acts, we have collected 250 submissions. We are currently reviewing those plays. There will be a table reading for the fall production sometime in April.
