WCT Presents "And Miss Reardon Drinks a Little"
Wichita Community Theatre continues its 2017-2018 Season with And
Miss Reardon Drinks a Little by Paul Zindel. This dark comedy runs March 7-18, 2018.
The show explores the relationship between three very different sisters after the death of their mother in the early 1960s. Having been deserted by their father in
early childhood, the girls were raised by their dominating mother.
Time has altered their once close relationship. Ceil has married and cut herself off from the others, Catherine has begun to drink more than she should, and Anna is on the brink of madness after a scandalous incident at the school where she teaches.
Ceil has come back to the Reardon home to convince Catherine into having Anna committed to an institution. The simmering resentments of many years burst alive and are inflamed. The unexpected arrival of a well-meaning but ill-mannered neighbor couple urges the action towards its devastating conclusion—in which all the pathos, humor and searing honesty of the play combine with overwhelming effect.
Don't miss this funny and fierce dark comedy.
Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $14 or $12 for military/senior/students. There is a special opening night ticket price of $10 for all on March 7 only.
