New Stage Comedy in Fitchburg Puts Romance To the Test

Forge Theater Lab at Fitchburg State University is kicking off its second season with a production of “On Our Terms,” a new play written by Fitchburg State alumna Mary Darling. The play runs September 6-14 in the Wallace Theater for the Perform- ing Arts in the McKay Building at 67 Rindge Road. This production is directed by Noah Dawson of Fitchburg, another FSU graduate who is also a drama teacher at the Sizer School.
     In this absurd, provocative comedy, two people negotiate a one-year relationship contract before their first date, to ensure that all of their expectations are met. As they make their way through the transaction, they share stories of previous failed relationships, in hopes that maybe this one will last.
“On Our Terms” is the first event in the second season of The Forge Theater Lab, a group in resi- dence at Fitchburg State devoted to developing new plays. More information about The Forge is available at
     This play is not recommended for children under 14 because of adult language. It will perform on September 6, 7, 13, and 14 at 8 p.m.; September 8 at 2 p.m.; and September 12 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $15 with a $5 rate for students; September 12 is a “pay what you can” show.
