Our 2014-2015 Season: Mainstage

written by Stephen Dietz

Opening Night: January 16, 2015

Closing Night: February 7, 2015

Grad student Adam has his hands full with his fiancee, his dead father's conspiracy-theory-obsessed best friend and a mysterious stranger who shows up one day at his bar, Yankee Tavern.  When a former professor asks him to come to Washington DC for meetings with some three letter agencies, he finds himself involved in something that he has a hard time believing — and it might put him and everyone he loves in danger.

So when a stranger walks into a bar and orders two drinks, one for himself and one for an unseen friend, it seems like the set up to an old tired joke. But instead of a punchline, we're confronted with urban legends and conspiracy theories – the last great American Tall Tales. From the Apollo 11 "Moon Landing" to "all those hanging chads" to the fall of Building Seven on September 11, playwright Stephen Dietz weaves a story that is plausible enough to blur the lines between fact and fiction and foster much post-show discussion. Yankee Tavern is not a study of fact — of what did or didn't happen — it's about the agony of uncertainty.
