PUTNAM — The Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut at the Bradley Playhouse will present Nuts. This tense legal drama has been called the best courtroom melodrama since Witness for the Prosecution and The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. The show opens June 2 and runs for two weekends.

Reservations may be made with a major credit card online at or by calling 860-928-7887. Tickets may be purchased at the theater box office, either before the performance, or at the door if available. Purchasing your tickets ahead of time is always a good idea.
The TNECT production of Nuts is directed by William Corriveau. Tara Golson stars as Claudia Draper. D. Robert Corriveau appears as Aaron Levinsky, her attorney, and Jonathan Demers is the District Attorney, Franklin MacMillan. Psychiatrist Dr. Herbert Rosenthal is played by Jim Douglas. Preston Arnold and Tonya Leigh Brock portray Claudia’s parents, Arthur and Rose Kirk. The cast is completed by Roy Simmons as Judge Murdoch, Adam Leidemer as Harry Haggerty, and Brittany-Paige Kimlingen as The Recorder.   
Nuts was written in 1979 by Tom Topor, who drew upon his years of experience as a journalist covering New York City police stations, hospitals, and psychiatric wards. In 1987, it was made into a motion picture starring Barbra Streisand and Richard Dreyfuss.
Claudia Draper is a strong-willed, high class call girl indicted for manslaughter after killing a client in self-defense. Her mother and stepfather attempt to have her declared mentally incompetent, which would prevent a trial and cause her to be institutionalized. But is she really “nuts,” and can she convince the judge?
