The Romantic Comedy, FIREFLIES Announced At Clague Playhouse Opens On Januay 20

Clague Playhouse presents the romantic comedy, Fireflies by Matthew Barber, from the novel 'Eleanor and Abel' by Annette Sanford, to continue their 95th Season.   

Clague Playhouse presents the romantic comedy, Fireflies by Matthew Barber, from the novel 'Eleanor and Abel' by Annette Sanford, to continue their 95th Season.

Retired schoolteacher Eleanor Bannister lives a quiet life alone in tiny Groverdell, Texas, set in her routines and secure in her position as the town's most respected woman - until a hole in her roof draws the attention of Abel Brown, a smooth-talking drifter intent on renovating Eleanor's house, and possibly her life. Can the unexpected sparks of late-life romance be trusted, or is there truth in the gossip that Abel isn't all that he seems to be?

Either way, the whole town's talking. Directed by Fred Sternfeld, our cast features Molly Cornwell as Grace Bodell, Jeremy Jenkins as Eugene Claymire, Joseph Kerata as Abel Brown, and Anne McEvoy as Eleanor Bannister.

The play runs Friday, January 20, 2023 through Sunday, February 12, 2023 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm. Admission is $21 for adults, $20 for seniors (60+), and $13 for students (any age with a valid ID) and may be purchased by calling the Box Office at 440-331-0403 Wednesday through Saturday from 1-6 p.m. or visiting www.clagueplayhouse.org.
