“YANKEE TAVERN” A Psychological Thriller by Steven Dietz Presented by PURE Theatre Opens on January 22 in Charleston

PURE Theatre is proud to present the South Carolina premiere of the psychological thriller Yankee Tavern by Steven Dietz.  The play is directed by PURE Artistic Director Sharon Graci, and will feature Will Hodges, Randy Neale, Katie Huard, and Mark Poremba.  Opening Friday, January 22, 2010 at Upper Lance Hall on the grounds of Circular Congregational Church, the production will run through Saturday, February 13th.

Inside the walls of a crumbling New York tavern, a young couple find themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz’s acclaimed dramatic thriller is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word.   From the playwright of More Fun Than Bowling, Ten November, The Last of the Boys, Honus and Me, and Sherlock Holmes, comes a new play filled with mystery, conspiracy and thrills.  In an instant, outlandish hypothesis become dangerous realities as surprising revelations continue to emerge in this eye-opening look at our government and the theories behind the events that have shaped our country.

Rehava ads spark ethics complaint
By Molly Parker

One local real estate company’s ad campaign — encouraging homebuyers to “break up” with their agents — has stirred up so much controversy that the broker in charge is canceling it.

Steve deGuzman, owner of the Rehava Real Estate Store that opened last summer in North Charleston, says he has done nothing wrong. Still, deGuzman said he will halt the campaign out of “professional courtesy.”

Some billboards have already come down, and deGuzman said the advertisements posted on the stall doors of dozens of public restrooms will disappear soon. He also plans to take down the campaign’s accompanying Web site, www.breakupwithyouragent.com.
