At a gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding, and his wife is nowhere in sight.

Christine Penmark seems to have it all, a loving husband, a beautiful home, and the perfect daughter, Rhoda. But when a child drowns under suspicious circumstances, the whole town starts to speculate about what really happened… was it truly an accident? Was it a classmate?

She Stoops to Conquer
by Oliver Goldsmith
directed by Jennifer Georgia

One of the greatest romantic comedies of manners. A young man comes to the country to court the daughter of a friend of his father's. Although well-bred, he is shy around women of his own standing, but a rake around 'women of another sort.' He is fooled into thinking that the old-fashioned house he is to visit is actually an inn, his father's friend is the Innkeeper, and his potential betrothed a barmaid. Comic hijinks ensue.
