600 YEARS OF HISTORY IN 6000 SECONDS... HISTORY WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!
— Somebody, we think...

From Washington to Watergate, yea verily from the Bering Straits to Baghdad, from New World to New World Order – The Complete History of America (abridged) is a ninety minute rollercoaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American History, reminding us that it’s not the length of your history that matters – it’s what you’ve done with it!

About the Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company

Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company is dedicated to the principle that theatre is a vital component in a civil society. It is the mission of Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company to produce classic and contemporary works that bear witness to the rich variety and commonality of human experience and enhance the appreciation of theatre as a humanizing art form through live performances, workshops, readings and educational programs for the community.

While the heart of CCTC will be classic plays, we will also look to produce contemporary and new works that have something important to say that is universal in theme.  Our work will emphasize the power of language, delivering characters and stories that lead our audience on a compelling journey into the now of the play. Our goal is to create theatre that encourages our audience to contemplate the complexity of the human experience, celebrating individuality while recognizing and enhancing what is common in the human condition. But, most importantly, we wish to entertain, to engage and to inspire our audience through the communal experience of theatre.

Robert Ian Cutler

Robert Ian Cutler is thrilled to be joining the Commonwealth family! Robert has been performing locally for the last decade. In addition to acting, Robert has focused on improv, puppetry, and education of late culminating in the launch of the Pennsylvania Theatre Institute at West Chester University. Recent credits: Nicole Atkins' Brokedown Luck (music video), Cripple of Inishmaan (Curio), Page One (PHIT Comedy), Henry IV (Team Sunshine/SCP). After much soul-searching, Rob is declining the nomination for President of the United States of America. It isn't that he's not flattered, he's just interested in seeing other countries right now and doesn't want to be pinned down in a monogonational relationship. Also, he's ridiculously into the current decline of western civilization and has decided to take up the fiddle. He thinks it might come in handy just in case something starts burning.
