Down on his luck and in search of work, Francis Henshall finds himself employed by small-time gangster Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancee’s gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother’s killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero’s other 'guvnor'. Fighting a mounting sense of confusion, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. But how long can he keep them apart?

Christopher, a fifteen-year-old neurodivergent, is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit. His investigation leads him to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever. Equally humorous and heart-breaking, this winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Play, is a theatrical event not to be missed.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is a community driven arts organization. As such, we see the true value and the critical role that diversity serves in helping our theatre and community thrive. Going forward, we are determined to foster an environment that respects and promotes the value of diversity. The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem believes in the transformative power of the arts to enrich lives and revitalize communities. We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable space where everyone who participates in our programming — patrons, artists, employees, volunteers, and students — feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability.

While this is not an end-all statement and will constantly evolve as we and our organization (continues to) learn and grow, this is a starting point for forming actions that will encourage equity and make an impact.

Commitment (some in place some and some in the process):

  • Evaluating all scripts with considerations towards inclusion and diversity within the season.

  • Increasing camp accessibility by providing scholarships to those in need of financial assistance.

  • Creating an equitable internship that includes compensation.

  • Seeking the recruitment, retention, and support of Black and Indigenous artists and teachers of Color.

  • Seeking opportunities to provide resources for students and their families to attend shows.

  • Working with individual directors to strive for diverse casts and design teams.

  • Ensuring that all directors have casting and dramaturgical resources available to them to protect and support the cultural specificity required of the work.
