For seven years, Beyond The Overpass Theatre Company has transported Pulitzer Prize–winning plays and productions by international playwrights to rural Newfoundland. During the summer season, three distinct productions take center stage. Petty Cash spins the tale of the titular character, a troubadour who covers tunes by Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Patsy Cline as he struggles to make a name for himself as a country-music impersonator.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1981 and heralded by the New York Post for having "heart, wit, and a surprisingly zany passion," Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart built momentum both off and on Broadway before it was adapted into a movie starring Sissy Spacek and Diane Keaton. The play delves into the convoluted lives of the Magrath sisters, a trio that struggles with its tragic upbringing, individual failures, and murder in rural Mississippi.
Set in the near future, The Gills – A Little Musical combines a love story, songs, and an imagined local catastrophe to catapult the audience into an increasingly believable setting. As its green spaces are destroyed due to overpopulation, the town of Gander becomes the focus of the battle between Newfoundland's residents.
