The Little Sandwich Theatre will present Yankee Tavern, by Steven Dietz, at the Third Avenue Playhouse in Sturgeon Bay from March 25 – 27 and April 1 – 3. Friday and Saturday performances will take place at 7:30 pm; Sunday performances will take place at 2 pm.
Directed by Evelyne Keith, the play follows Adam, the young owner of a crumbling New York City Bar, as he becomes entrenched in a plot of personal and national significance. While his fiancé is busy counting down the days to their wedding, Adam deals with his dead father’s best friend, an aging barfly who believes that everything is a conspiracy. Among all this chaos, a stranger enters who knows much more than he should, in an instant blurring the lines between conspiracy theory and reality and forever changing the way these characters relate to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Steven Dietz is one of America’s most widely produced and published contemporary playwrights. He has won many awards for his writing including the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays award, the PEN USA West Award in Drama and the Edgar Award for Drama from the Mystery Writers of America.
