Southern Comforts

 By Kathleen Clark

 Directed by Shane Cullum


Amanda Cross – Joan Mullaney

Gus Klingman – Dale Parry


Some people need continuous change in order to feel vital and alive. Others are terrified of unsettling the peace that they have established. Two-time O’Neill Playwright’s Conference participant Kathleen Clark uses her words to detail this tour-de-force journey of a widow and widower who meet later in life and find a way into each others heart. Southern Comforts is a beautiful exploration of the intimate workings of all relationships. In a sprawling New Jersey Victorian, a taciturn Yankee widower and a vivacious grandmother from Tennessee find what they least expected – a second chance at love. Their funny, awkward, and enchanting romance is filled with sweet surprise and unpredictable tribulation. Told with warmth and perceptive humor, this off-Broadway success is an affecting, late-in-life journey of compromise and rejuvenation, of personal risk and the rewards of change.

    1. Absolutely we are still open for business. Staff are at the playhouse at odd times and which may not coincide with regular 9-5 business hours.

      Prescription: Murder is in the final week of rehearsals and opens this coming weekend, May 8th at 8:00-pm as scheduled.

  1. Please provide directions on your website; also place me on your mailing list. Thank you; never knew you were in this area. Are you a new production company?

    1. Theatre In The Valley has been operating in Henderson NV since 1992. We originally performed out of the Valley View Recreation Center, but we lost that space as a performance venue roughly five years ago when the City of Henderson reorganized properties it’s and agencies. We continued with touring productions for two years after that, but found it to be too difficult, as we lacked a place to rehearse and actors were not able to perform on the set until the first performance. Touring was also very hard on the sets and lighting and sound equipment. We at that time decided to take a hiatus from productions until we could find a property that we could lease and turn into a playhouse. After a three year search we finally found our current location at 10 West Pacific Avenue, Henderson, NV 89015. It’s not perfect, but it’s a good location for our reemergence. Our first production in that location was a special production of The Magic Toy Box. A new and original holiday family musical by local playwright Rick Bindhamer.

      Directions are as follows:

      If you are coming from West of Henderson, Travel east on the 215 until the freeway ends and becomes Lake Mead Parkway.

      If you are coming from North of Henderson, take the 95 south and exit onto eastbound Lake Mead Parkway. (The very next exit immediately after Auto Show Drive.)

      Continue on Eastbound Lake Mead Parkway until you reach Water Street, turning South (right) onto Water Street. At the very first stop sign on Water Street turn Right. Theatre In the Valley is the second business in the strip mall on the right (North) side of West Pacific Avenue. There is plenty of public parking lots in the area, one behind the strip mall, one across the street just before the Emerald Isle Casino, as well as two more public parking lots on both sides of the street just a little farther past the strip mall on both sides of West Pacific.
