HYDE PARK – The Lamoille County Players will present their foliage production of “Blue Window,” written by Craig Lucas, at the Hyde Park Opera House on September 30 to October 9.

The show follows a group of New Yorkers as they come together for a dinner party, exploring connections and interweaving dialogue and music. Performances run September 30 to October 2, and October 7 to 9. Evening shows are at 7 p.m., on Fridays and Saturdays, and matinees are Sundays at 2 p.m.

Coming together for a dinner party are the nervous hostess Libby, her best friend Griever, a fiction writer (Alice), her lover (Boo), who is learning Italian, Norbert, the quiet parachute instructor, an aspiring composer struggling to write a song (Tom), and a lost secretary in search of her own story (Emily). Each character represents a piece of the puzzle, a separate fragment that is woven together into the story. When the pieces are intertwined, relationships emerge; both personal, and interpersonal. Past fears, pain, doubt, faith, all are interwoven to create a quick-moving performance that explores how we connect to or disconnect from others throughout our lives.

Director Monica Callan says, “Blue Window is written like a piece of music, its players in a flow of phrases of call and response, crescendos, and silences, clashing, melding, and creating the rhythm of what it is to live together and apart inside the human condition. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s touching, and mostly it’s delightfully entertaining to watch the antics play out to invite us all to be more present, kind, and forgiving of each other and of ourselves.”
