Parkway members, friends and visitors have been going AWOL for years. A variety of opportunities are offered to weave us together.

AWOL Goes to the Rep!

Join AWOL (Adventurous Women Out Late) at the Rep for

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT

Fri, Sep 22 | :008pm. Tickets approx $40

RSVP to Carmen Bumgarner asap: cfbum@charter.net (314-330-0813)

The Broadway production debuted at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in October 2014 and closed in September 2016. It won the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2015 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play.

 

The story concerns a mystery surrounding the death of a neighbor’s dog that is investigated by young Christopher Boone, who has an autism spectrum condition, and his relationships with his parents and school mentor. The play reworked the source material by changing its voice and presenting the story as a play-within-a-play. The play has received a generally warm reception, with most critics impressed by its ability to convey the point of view of the young protagonist and the compassion of his school mentor.

AWOL to see Hidden Figures 1/14

AWOL (Adventurous Women Out Late) to see Hidden Figures

Sat, Jan 14 | Carpool from church 6:30pm or meet at theater (TBA).

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the true life stories of three of these women, “human computers,” we follow them as they rose the ranks of NASA specifically tasked with calculating the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Directed by Kasey Cox

Assisted by Danny Austin

Steel Magnolias is the poignant story of a close-knit group of deeply-Southern women. The talk of the town is the upcoming wedding of Shelby, the beautiful and fragile daughter of M’Lynn, an intelligent, compassionate career woman.  Truvy owns the beauty parlor which is the female epicenter of the town. Regular customers keep the banter and bickering going as the group gathers each week at Truvy’s. It’s here that they find comfort and strength in each other while they discuss relationships and loneliness, happiness and loss. A heartwarming, hilarious, and bitter-sweet story about the special bond that enables these women to find their ways past life’s obstacles using humor, compassion, love…and a lot of hairspray.

*Rumors:
Charlie and Myra are hosting a party to celebrate their wedding anniversary, but when the first guests arrive, Charlie is hiding in his room with a gunshot wound to the earlobe and Myra and the servants are nowhere to be found. In an effort to protect their friends from a possible scandal, a story is made up about the missing couple. The more people involved in the story, the more elaborate and exaggerated the story becomes. This Neil Simon parlor comedy shows just how easy it is for rumors to take on a life of their own.
