Rover Theatre Company Presents ASYLUM IN GEORGIA
Rover Theatre Company presents ASYLUM IN GEORGIA, a new comedy by John C. Davenport and directed by Cindy Giese French, at West of Lenin theater, 203 N. 36th St. in Seattle. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 13-29, with one matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23.
A Texas TV anchorwoman on "administrative leave" (the result of an on-air meltdown) comes to the tiny Georgia town of Throckmorton, which she had visited as a girl. She meets a few of the locals, some of whom are a little short on Southern hospitality. She has just dropped off her son (who has his own issues) to start college in Atlanta. But the big questions concern a pile of bricks in Throckmorton that may provide some answers about her late father. And did we mention it's a comedy?
This is our fourth production, following Davenport's RED ROVER, and two plays by Duane Kelly, DAS ENDE and VISITING CEZANNE.
