CCHS Thespians offer 'Delightful Quarantine' this weekend
April 22, 2009 The Crawford County High School Thespians will present "A Delightful Quarantine" this weekend.
The play, written by Mark Dunn, details an extraterrestrial "invasion" of the suburban, middle-class community of Susqua Creek Acres, Pa., that places its human residents and visitors under sudden housebound quarantine. Secrets get revealed, conflicts erupt and recede, long festering wounds are dressed, and friendships and relationships are terminated or reinstated.
Audiences will experience the interwoven stories of a mother reunited with the son she gave up for adoption 32 years earlier; a man with a secret that upends his marriage; a woman with 14 cats, all invisible; a foiled house burglary that must wait three days for the police; a rekindled high school romance; two young couture-obsessed little girls "home alone" for the duration; and a brother who cannot honor his sick sister's greatest wish.
Performances on Friday and Saturday will be at 7 p.m., while that on Sunday will be at 2 p.m.
CCHS is located at 1130 S. S.R. 66, Marengo. The play will be presented in the cafeteria.
