Live theatre returns – outdoors and with social distancing – at the Alliance! We’ve been hard at work to create an intimate, open-air venue where our neighbors can safely enjoy live entertainment. And what better backdrop for a performance than the gorgeous Florida sky?
Reserve your square for Confusions now! The evening will kick off with The Still Alarm by George S. Kauffman. Originally written for a Broadway revue, The Still Alarm concerns two businessmen who are sharing a hotel room. This fairly placid duo discover that smoke is coming into their room and that the hotel’s alarm bells are ringing furiously. Rather than panic, they handle the affair with proper English aplomb.
Between Mouthfuls, a fate-fraught dinner encounter, is the uproarious centerpiece of the evening. In a hotel restaurant two couples at adjoining restaurant tables realize an unwelcome common bond, assisted by an interactive waiter. Mrs Pearce wonders who Mr Pearce is sleeping with. Polly’s not been frank to Martin (who really doesn’t care at all about Polly’s affair). The waiter is extremely well spoken. There’s clever direction of the alternation between the two sets of conversations. A twist to the plot-line spices the ending.
The final play, A Talk In The Park by Ayckbourn. Ideals with five lonely strangers who vie for four available park benches.
Seating is limited and attendees will purchase a pass for a 6×6 square space on our GreenMarket lawn. In order to maintain social distancing, all lawn spaces will be 6 feet apart.

The average per person price is $12.50 plus fees. No pets, please.
