For Release Through Dec. 12
DALLAS- A few laughs and a little romance can warm your heart for winter, so make plans to see Theatre Brookhaven's production of Neil Simon's "Fools" Dec. 2-12. Set in the Ukraine, an ambitious schoolteacher arrives in a town that has been cursed. The nature of the curse is right there in the title of the play; the town is full of fools.
Directed by Charles Self, "Fools" is filled with snappy dialogue and scene-stealing characters. To break the curse on this village, the schoolteacher, Leon Tolchinsky, must either marry or educate the beautiful daughter of his new employer. Will the curse be broken before Leon too becomes a fool? You will have to watch-and laugh-to find out.
Shows are Dec. 2-4 and 9-11 at 8 p.m., and Dec. 5 and 12 at 2:30 p.m. in the Arena Theatre, Bldg. C, Room C205. General admission is $8; students, DCCCD employees and senior adults are $6.
