New Bedford --- On March 16, 2017, Your Theatre, Inc. will open the 4th production of their 70th consecutive season with an eight show run of "The House of Blue Leaves" by John Guare. With a cast of eleven experienced South Coast actors, the play is directed by Bob Gillet of Fall River.

Artie Shaughnessy is a songwriter with visions of glory. Toiling by day as a zookeeper, he suffers in seedy lounges by night, plying his wares at piano bars in Queens, New York where he lives with his wife, Bananas. Much to the chagrin of Artie's downstairs mistress, Bunny Flingus, who'll sleep with him anytime but refuses to cook until they are married. Also arriving is Artie's old school chum, a successful Hollywood producer, Billy Einhorn, who holds the key to Artie's dreams of getting out of Queens and away from the life he so despises. But like many dreams, this promise of glory evaporates amid the chaos of ordinary lives.

Your Theatre, Inc. is grateful to our 70th Season Sponsor, Bank 5, for their fifth year of strong support for the arts and to Ricciardi Financial Group for sponsorship of this production.

Performance dates are March 16-18 and 23-25 at 8:00 p.m. and March 19 and 26 at 2:30PM. Performances are held in the wheelchair accessible Your Theatre, Inc. Playhouse located at 136 Rivet St. (corner of County St.), New Bedford, at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church Complex. Free off-street parking and entrance are on County St.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for season subscribers and $13 for senior citizens, students and military personnel. For tickets and further information call YTI at 508-993-0772, or send an e mail to The theatre’s web site is
