From 23 Sep to 18 Oct 2014

Synopsis: Based on the true story of a movie star’s appearance in an Oxford student play.

When Tony falls in love with the beautiful movie star Margot Gresham, in Oxford to appear in a play with the undergraduates, their relationship is put to the test.
From 25 Nov to 20 Dec 2014
Evergreen Theatrical Productions presents The Green Bay Tree, written by Mordaunt Shairp.
Synopsis: Telling the story of a beautiful young man as he is forced to choose between the love of his fiancee and the lifestyle of his male mentor, the work is a comedy of manipulation and self-repression.
