The Marriage of Bette And Boo

2 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday

Perhaps the most personal of Christopher Durang’s plays, it is also one of the funniest from this master of darkly satiric works. Durang brings his unflinching focus to an examination of family structure, personal hopes, and self deception. The play follows one couple’s marriage through better and worse, as they struggle to raise a son without lowering their expectations of one another and of life. Through it all, their wildly eccentric extended families simultaneously support and smother them. Skillfully weaving the tragic and comic together, The Marriage of Bette and Boo is filled with fastpaced, lacerating humor, but it is also touching and ultimately about forgiveness.

Reservations highly recommended: $12 or Elon ID. Reservations will be taken beginning January 12 by calling (336) 278-5650*
