Buffalo Gal

by A. R. Gurney
10 – 26 September 2015

Director: George Werther

Assistant Director & Production Coordinator: Brian Christopher


When Hollywood diva Amanda returns to her home city of Buffalo, New York to play the lead in Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, life begins to imitate art. Both her career and personal life are at a watershed as she revisits the world that shaped her.


In the midst of rehearsals for The Cherry Orchard, we are transported between the relationships and regrets of both Amanda and her alter-ego Madam Ranevskaya.


This is a delightful and poignant piece which speaks to both the world of the theatre and the ephemeral nature of opportunities and choices we make over the inevitable passing of time.
