 Reno, NV.  In his play: Happy Birthday, Wanda June, Kurt Vonnegut finds a powerful vehicle for his tragicomically imagination. It is a social comedy about men who enjoy killing—and those who don’t.

The Plot:  Odysseus comes home to the unexpected … including a cake.  After 8 years in the Amazon jungle, soldier of fortune Harold Ryan, with his sidekick Col. Looseleaf Harper, returns home...on his birthday...only to find that his fourth wife Penelope has had him declared legally dead, is engaged to a peace loving doctor and dating a vacuum cleaner salesman. As only Vonnegut could tell it, Ryan must face the truth about his wife, his son and himself. Along the way, Wanda June, a Nazi Major and Ryan's third wife illuminate the situation.  Vonnegut's attack on phony heroes and male swagger uses some of the funniest dialogue ever created for the stage.

Happy Birthday, Wanda June opens with a post-show opening night champagne reception and appetizers from the Wild River Grille. The show runs weekly Thursday through Sunday through February 4, 2017. Evening shows begin at 8:00 pm (Artist night is Wednesday January 25A, 2017.  – ALL TICKETS are $10 for Artist Night.) There is one Sunday matinee on February 22, 2017 beginning at 2:00 PM.  The matinee is followed by a talk back with the company and our audience.  The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. Suggested for ages 14 and up.

"FOUR STARS. Sarah Ruhl delivers a brilliant comedy that aims for big laughs and hits its target. Funny: There’s nothing like it." — New York Post 

Reno, NV.  Sarah Ruhl’s Romantic Comedy:  STAGE KISS opens Brüka Theatre’s 2016/17 Season on September 30, 2016. Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Stage Kiss captures Sarah Ruhl’s singular voice. It is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one.

STAGE KISS opens with a post-show opening night champagne reception and appetizers from the Wild River Grille. The show runs weekly Thursday through Sunday through October 22. Evening shows begin at 8:00 pm (Artist night is Wednesday October 19A, 2016.  – ALL TICKETS are $10 for Artist Night.) There is one Sunday matinee on October 9 beginning at 2:00 PM.  The matinee is followed by a talk back with the company and our audience.  The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. Suggested for ages 14 and up.
