READERS THEATRE REPERTORY LAUNCHES ITS 14TH SEASON WITH LAUGHTER

MAY IN SEPTEMBER
Production Dates Friday & Saturday, September 12-13 2014

September 12th and 13th brings May to Readers Theatre Rep with Adaptation and an edited Not Enough Rope, both by Elaine May and directed by Wendy Wilcox. “We often start the season with something contemplative, but I felt we as a culture need a little humor right now,” says Wilcox. “Or a whole lot of humor, in the case of Elaine May’s plays.”
 
Adaptation has been called “…just plain marvelous” by the New York Times; “…a brilliant, funny and original one-acter” by Newsday; and  “…witty and sound and very funny” by The New Yorker. The story centers on a contest, played like Parcheesi, in which the contestant advances or is sent back through the seven ages of man. As contestants move from “mewling infant” to “second childishness and mere oblivion,” the laughs are non-stop. “And then you wonder if you just might be laughing at yourself,” says Wilcox. 
 
The cast includes Spencer Conway, Christy Drogosch, Garland Lyons, and Josh Rengert.
