A.R. Gurney’s 'The Fourth Wall' Calendar Notice - May 1 to May 23, 2009
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (March 16, 2009) – This May, TheatreWorks New Milford will open the wildly off-beat comedy, THE FOURTH WALL, by renowned “Sylvia” playwright, A.R. Gurney.
THE FOURTH WALL takes interior decorating to theatrical and hilarious new heights. Peggy, an idyllic upper-middle-class housewife who usually possesses exquisite taste, is overcome by a mysterious impulse to redecorate her living room as if it were a stage set. All who enter begin to behave as if they were acting in a play. Unable to cope any further, Peggy’s confused husband Roger summons an old friend, Julia, for comfort — and perhaps a bit more — as well as an aloof theatre professor who Roger hopes can “Doctor” Peggy’s play and bring it to a close, so Roger and Peggy can get on with their so-called “normal” lives.
THE FOURTH WALL is under the direction of Sonnie Osborne of New Milford.
THE FOURTH WALL features some of the region’s finest actors: Jonathan Ross (Thomaston); LuAnn Leonard (New York City); Glenn R. Couture (Ansonia); and Beth Bonnabeau-Harding (New Milford).
THE FOURTH WALL runs May 1,2 8,9 15,16,17 22,23. Curtain time is 8:00 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays, with a 2:00 p.m. Sunday matinee on May 17. Tickets for all shows are $20.00 for reserved seating.
