Forward Theater Company Presents THE AMATEURS
Forward Theater Company will finish their 11th season with the regional premiere (and third-ever production) of The Amateurs by Jordan Harrison. This inventive and hilarious play will be presented in the Playhouse at Overture Center, March 19 - April 5, 2020.
The Amateurs features an itinerant troupe of actors performing plays about Bible stories as they attempt to outrun the Black Plague in this 14th century-set comedy. The Renaissance is still in the future, and so is the concept of self-determination. So when a female performer stops a performance to wonder why Mrs. Noah would get on the ark, she throws her castmates into chaos.a??a??
Previews (first Thursday performance): $20 for the general public
Seniors (62+): $34-$46
