Bold Comedy Kicks Off Barter Theatre's 2018 Spring Season

Opening Barter Theatre's 2018 spring season is the favorite hit comedy, "A Facility for Living." The show will kick off the season February 8 at Barter Stage II.

The director of "Million Dollar Quartet," Susanne Boulle, is returning to provide an amusing, entertaining, and life-affirming show that you won't forget.

An all-star cast is taking the stage to bring this show to life. After taking last season off, Eugene Wolf is returning for this show only. He and Mary Lucy Bivins make this laugh-out-loud performance an unforgettable experience.

This hilarious show can be described as "The Golden Girls" meets "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." A penitentiary has been converted to a federal nursing home where an overbearing nurse controls every aspect of daily life. When a new resident arrives to shake things up, this band of misfits hatches an outrageous plan to break all the rules, and in the process they rediscover their purpose and dignity in a system stacked against them.

Katie Forgette's "A Facility for Living" is made possible by corporate sponsor TruPoint Bank.

To purchase tickets, please visit or call 276-628-3991. Tickets for all performances of "A Facility for Living" begin at just $20.

Barter Theatre, the nation's longest running professional theatre, is located in Abingdon, Virginia. The theatre opened in 1933 during the Great Depression. Founder Robert Porterfield offered patrons admission to the theatre by bartering food and livestock. Barter Theatre was designated as the state theatre of Virginia in 1946. It exists today as one of the last year-round professional resident repertory theaters remaining in the United States. Barter Theatre is funded in part by The Virginia Commission for the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts.
