PAST SHOWS

Rock the Ground Theater Company’s Past Performances

 

VENUS IN FUR 2014

Playwright Thomas Novachek is frustrated. There are simply no actresses talented enough to play his leading lady. When Vanda auditions he suddenly has to take notice as a seductive power play ensues. With loads of cheek and a lot of laughs, Venus in Fur keeps you on the edge of your seat.

GOD OF CARNAGE 2014

In an ordinary living room, two couples meet to discuss a playground altercation that took place between their sons. As they struggle with the pressures of political correctness and modern life, they are pulled down to the roots of their selves by what? Authenticity? Revelation? Freedon? Or… a God of Carnage.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM 2010

This play, one of William Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, revolves around the adventures of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors and what happens to them when they visit a moonlit forest filled with fairies.

UNCLE VANYA 2010

More than one hundred years ago… In another country… In a fragile world of the past… A fragile world so like our own… Eight extraordinary characters are brought together. Eight people searching for meaning, for happiness, for love. Passionate in their convictions, these wonderful characters are funny, flawed, wise and foolish… They speak to us, these ghosts from one hundred years ago, Shadows moving about an old dilapidated house.

ROCKY HORROR SHOW 2009

“Rocky Horror” is Glam Rock at it’s glittering, magnificent best. Enduring as a cultural phenomenon, a cult film classic, a romantic spoof of science fiction and horror films, an anarchic revolt against the mainstream and a celebration of alternative lifestyles and sexual freedom, but above all, it ROCKS! So, get out of your chairs and dance! Don’t dream it, be it!

HAMLET 2009

Tragedy of the first order is a rare phenomenon. Murder, madness and immanent war combined with a ghost, vendettas, spies and poisoning make this play one of Shakespeare’s finest. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark and this vicious rendition of the play exposes the horror of power-hungry plots and the ruin of a royal family.
