Tonight’s (Thursday, Nov. 15) performance of WOMAN IN MIND is cancelled

The safety of our patrons and our company is very important to us. In light of the current road conditions due to the inclement weather, we are canceling tonight’s performance of WOMAN IN MIND.

We still have great seats available for the remaining nine performances of the production.  The REP box office staff will be happy to exchange your tickets to another performance.

You can reach the REP Box Office Monday – Friday, noon to 5 pm or email to arrange the exchange.

Thank you for your understanding.


Described as the “comic poet of middle class life,” Ayckbourn creates a black comedy of domestic madness. Susan’s life is far from perfect: a loveless marriage, a distant son and a miserable sister-in-law.  Everything changes one day after an accident in the garden.  Suddenly, she has a family that is charming and delightful, with days full of champagne breakfasts and jolly tennis matches. This life is everything she has ever wanted, but is any of this real? Is it a perfect dream or a perfect nightmare?​

Woman in Mind runs approximately two hours and thirty minutes, including one fifteen minute intermission.
Theatrical haze, lightning effects, and sounds of thunder and gunshots are used in this production.
