ONE OF THE OLDEST & MOST SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITY THEATRES IN THE COUNTRY
Juliana Smithton is a strong-willed, successful neurologist, and one of the “smartest people in the room.” But her life comes unhinged just as her research leads to a potential breakthrough in treating Alzheimer’s Disease. Her husband is filing for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man and her own health is uncertain. A glimpse of an enigmatic young woman during a lecture leads her into a deepening and disorienting personal mystery. One step at a time, Juliana’s world unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod. From the beginning to the very end when the elusive truth finally boils to the surface, “The Other Place” is compelling, terrifying, and ultimately heartbreaking.

In a small Southern town, a school teacher, Bertram Cates, is about to stand trial. His offense: violating a state law by introducing to his students the concept that man descended from the apes, a theory of the naturalist Charles Darwin. The town is excited because appearing on behalf of the prosecution will be the famous Matthew Harrison Brady, a staunch foe of Darwinism and a Biblical scholar and 3-time presidential candidate, to teach the naive teacher Cates the error of his ways. A surprise is in store for Brady, however. The teacher's defense is to be handled by the equally well-known Henry Drummond, one of America's most controversial legal minds and a long-standing acquaintance and adversary of Brady. Taken from the Transcripts of the Scopes-Monkey Trial, this courtroom drama explores science, religion, and the eternal fight of one to denounce the other.
