Logo of "The Inseparables"Indiana University of Pennsylvania's Theater-by-the-Grove will open their 2021–22 season and return to live performances with the premiere of Pittsburgh playwright T.J. Young’s play The Inseparables. Directed by Richard Kemp, the production will be presented on the Waller Hall Mainstage on November 3–6, at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee on November 7 at 2:00 p.m. 

Virtual performances of a previously recorded performance will be available for streaming on November 6–7. Tickets for live performances (or unique streaming codes for virtual performances) will be available for purchase online and over the phone. Audiences who are attending live shows are required to wear face masks.

The Inseparables by T. J. Young tells the comic tale of a theater company, The North American Unified Theatre Collaborators of the West, who really want to put on a show. The actors have decided to stage a new adaptation of The Three Musketeers. Only, they aren't nearly as prepared as they should be. With puppets and pool noodles, this theater group prepares for their glorious comeback… that may not happen. 

Called “a joyous romp that is both reverential and entirely original” and “a love letter to theatre as the source material,” The Inseparables is a fun evening of entertainment for those who are newcomers to the tale or for those who are familiar with the story of The Three Musketeers.

Theater-by-the-Grove’s productions will be performed and presented both in person and virtually. Tickets for this event are available for purchase online through the Lively Arts ticketing website.
