Community theater features ‘darkly comic’ play

NEW BRITAIN - The Hole in the Wall community theater in New Britain will be putting on a production of “Our House” for the next few weeks.

The play is a comedy about our current culture that consistently turns tragic, real events into entertainment. It’s described on the Hole in the Wall’s website as “a darkly comic look at America’s obsession with ‘reality’ television.” It was written by Theresa Rebeck and directed by Ryan Wantroba.

“Our House” will play every Friday and Saturday from Friday, July 13 to Saturday, Aug. 4. Each performance starts at 8 p.m. On Sunday, July 22, a matinee production will take place at 2 p.m. Seating begins 30 minutes before the production.

Friday, July 20 is “Pay What You Can Night” although anybody who wishes to reserve a ticket to that performance has to pay the full amount.

A ticket costs $20 or $15 if it’s a senior aged 62 and older or a student with a student ID. To reserve tickets, call 860-229-3049 or visit

The theater is located at 116 Main St in New Britain with free parking in the Chestnut Street garage next to the police station.
