In a trio of plays, the "Happiness Trilogy," writer Richard Dresser explored class in America, and the need for individuals (no matter their status) to rely on one another in our society. The first play in the trilogy, the one-act "Augusta," follows two Maine women who clean houses for the wealthy, and the repercussions that follow when the cleaning company brings in a new, abusive boss. BART Productions will present "Augusta" this weekend, featuring Jillian Severin as Claire, Stephanie Sheak as Molly, and James Heath as Jimmy, the boss. Donald B. Bartalo directs the play.
"Augusta" will be performed Thursday, January 28, through Sunday, January 31, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday; 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. $12-$15. muccc.org.
