25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, August 14 thru September 4
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. At the Bucks County Playhouse, 70 S. Main Street, New Hope, with showtimes at 7:30, 8 and 2 PM. Call 215-693-1265 or go to http://www.bcptheater.org/ for more information.

Speed the Plow by David Mamet, August 14 thru 29

The original production starred Joe Mantegna, Ron Silver, and Madonna in dissecting- well, maybe vivisecting- corrupt Hollywood culture. Two producer/friends are reaching for the big time, pitching a new script with a big star already on board, to a major studio. Their efforts get sidetracked when they wager over the seduction of a temporary secretary. She seduces one of them to advance her own interest in another project- an "apocalyptically spiritual novel" with no screen potential. At the Historic Spring Garden Mill at 1440 Newtown-Richboro Road in Newtown. Call 215-860-0818 or go to http://www.langhorneplayers.org for more information.
