PCA's Readers' Theatre to Stage ADVANCED CHEMISTRY, Beg. 4/24
Prescott Center for the Arts (PCA) Readers' Theatre presents ADVANCED CHEMISTRY by Rich Orloff, April 24-27 at 7 p.m. in Stage Too* (*Pending certificate of occupancy - check website for updated location info). Directed by Mary Timpany.
The show will also play April 27 at 2:00PM at Chino Valley Senior Center, 1021 Butterfield, Chino Valley and May 4 at 1:00PM at Prescott Valley Library, 7401 E. Civic Circle, Prescott Valley.
ADVANCED CHEMISTRY proves that when it comes to sex, you're never old enough to know better. This pair of award-winning one-act comedies looks at love and lust among the senior crowd. The opening play, MOURNING GLORY, takes a light-hearted look at the situation. It explores the question: What is the appropriate waiting period before a guy can hit on his dead friend's spouse? And how long should she wait if her late husband was lousy in bed?
The second play, GETTING LUCKY, digs into deeper and more intimate terrain. This play deals with an older couple who decide to take their relationship further physically, only to learn that just one of them wants to take it further emotionally.
ADVANCED CHEMISTRY has had staged readings and workshops in New York, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Oregon and Michigan, but it has not yet been professionally produced. The readings have featured such actors as Ed Asner, Olympia Dukakis, Dick Latessa (Tony Award, Best Supporting Actor, for HAIRSPRAY), Louise Lasser, Fyvush Finkel (Emmy Award, Best Featured Actor, PICKET FENCES) and Lynn Cohen (Magda on SEX AND THE CITY).
Suggested donation is $5 per person.
