Women at Play presents its last production: Hungry Hearts

This message was sent in By Katherine Burkman. Women at Play has produced many wonderful and memorable productions in Columbus for te past 12 years. Sadly, we are now informed that the company is disbanding. A real loss for all who love good theatre. -charlie

Dear Friend of Women at Play.

We wanted you to know that our group is disbanding after 12 years. Although somewhat sad, we are excited about our final production, an adaptation of Francine Prose's wonderful novel HUNGRY HEARTS, which will take place March 23 at 7:30, 24 at 2:00, 25 at 8:00, 26 at 2:00, 30 at 8, 31 at 2, April 1 at 8, April 2 at 2. All at the JCC at 1125 College Ave. Tickets $20, or $15 for students/seniors/members of JCC. Group rates available as well.

The play, which we will be giving its world premiere, is a dramatic but joyous romp about a Yiddish acting company who are rehearsing THE DYBBUK in New York in 1920 and take it to South America. The leading lady gets invaded by a real dybbuk (the spirit of a dead person) and the rest of the play involves solving this problem. Mimi Chenfeld is doing choreography and Arcadiy Gips will play live violin. Attached is our poster. For tickets/information: 457-6580.
