SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah)- The Salt Lake Acting Company is kicking off its 48th season with a mouthful of a show that you’re sure to love.
Now through October 21 see Halley Feiffer’s romantic comedy A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGY UNIT AT MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER OF NEW YORK CITY at the Salt Lake Acting Company located at 168 West 500 North.
In the play, an unlikely pair meets in an unlikely place for romance: the bedsides of their dying mothers, who are sharing a room at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Karla is a loud, crass comedian, trying to get her act together; Don is a meek, sad super-nerd, dealing with the challenges of single parenting. They couldn’t be more different, except that they are sharing one of the most difficult and personal experiences a person can have – losing their mothers.
SLAC’s production is directed by University of Utah professor Sarah Shippobotham and features a powerhouse cast of local actors. Cassandra Stokes-Wylie (BULL SHARK ATTACK, HARBUR GATE) plays Karla, Chris DuVal (director of HAND TO GOD) plays Don, SLAC newcomer Marion Markham plays Marcie, and SLAC veteran Annette Wright plays Geena.
The show runs Wednesday through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 1 and 6 p.m.
This play contains adult language and sexual content.
