Based on a true story, this play focuses on an average housewife in 1961 Cold War London and how her life of unravels when her best friend is accused of being a spy. Barbara and Bob Jackson are a typical English couple, living in the suburbs with their daughter Julie. They enjoy a friendship with their outgoing Canadian neighbors, Helen and Tom Kroger ‐ until suddenly one day a British intelligence agent arrives and seeks the Jacksons' cooperation in investigating the Krogers, who are suspected of being undercover Soviet agents. Bob and Barbara struggle over how much to cooperate with British intelligence, knowing that their friends could soon be charged with espionage. Barbara, especially, is greatly torn between her duty of friendship vs her duty to Queen and country.

New Season Announcement March 27
Curtain Players will announce details of its 2015-2016 program year on Friday March 27, opening night of the community theatre company’s production of the Tennessee Williams drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Curtain Players has committed to six scripts for the new season, the company’s 53rd. Those six titles, along with the director-producer-stage manager teams who will lead the respective productions, are expected to be announced before the Cat performance. The board is working to confirm performance rights and personal commitments in advance of the announcement.
The 2015-2016 production calendar was confirmed in February. The six scripts will be produced between September and May and, per Curtain custom, each show will run eight performances over three weekends: SHOW 1, September 11-27; SHOW 2, October 23-November 8; SHOW 3, December 4-20; SHOW 4, February 5-21; SHOW 5, March 18-April 3; and SHOW 6, May 6-22.
Marla Williams chaired the season selection committee whose members read scripts, reviewed director applications and interviewed candidates, and made recommendations to the board for consideration. Neil Aring, Mary Benge, Casey Merkey, and Kirsten Peninger joined Williams on the panel.
March 27 is also World Theatre Day. The first World Theatre Day was marked by its founder, the Paris-based International Theatre Institute, in 1962. Jill Taylor, Curtain Players president, said the observance coupled with a Curtain Players opening night make a most fitting time to share the new season news and to celebrate all things theatre.
