World Premiere Comedy “Red Maple” Comes to Capital Repertory Theatre [Berkshire on Stage]
ALBANY, N.Y.—JAN. 8, 2019—A dinner party. Two couples. Old friends all. What could go wrong?
A better question might be what could go right?
David Bunce’s comedy Red Maple is a love story for empty nesters. It makes its world premiere at Capital Repertory Theatre, Jan. 25–Feb. 17.
In the two-act romp, set in the Albany suburbs, Bunce pits Robert Morton Ph.D. and his wife, Stephanie, against John Hartley and his wife, Karen, in a careening evening of secrets, revelations and lies. The collective kids are finally on their own, and both couples, thirty years on, are coming to terms with what happens next—and wondering if it still involves each other.
