Spend the Holidays with "Comfort & Joy" at the Richmond Triangle Players
Nov. 17 - Dec. 11, 2010
Jack Heifner's Mapcap Holiday Comedy
Comfort and Joy
Directed by Amy Berlin
Featuring T. Ross Aitken, Hilary Beard, Keith Fitzgerald, Ford Flanagan, Trevor Kimball, and Starlet Knight
It's the Christmas season in the Hollywood Hills. Scott and Tony, a happily married couple, find themselves in the middle of a holiday disaster.
Scott's recently widowed, demanding mother arrives from Texas convinced that her son is really straight. Tony's brother, recently thrown out by his wife, is camped out on the sofa threatening suicide. Tony's sister arrives unexpectedly from South America in a very pregnant condition.
And into this holiday whirlwind descends an unusual fairy - yes, a real one -- who teaches the family about love, hope and forgiveness.
Written by the author of the modern classic Vanities and RTP's smash hit Key West, Comfort and Joy is inventive and hilarious, fast-moving, and ultimately, a touching way to spend the holidays.
Opens Wednesday November 17; Plays Thursday - Saturday Evenings at 8:00 pm, through December 11. Sunday matinees on November 28 and December 5 at 4:00 pm. Tickets $20 (Thurs Eve and Sun Mat) and $25 (Fri and Sat Evenings).
The Thursday, November 18 performance of Comfort and Joy will benefit the Central Virginia Food Bank. All you need to do is bring at least one non-perishable food item that night, and you will receive one ticket to that evening's performance! Need more tickets? Bring more food! How simple is that?
The Central Virginia Food Bank asks that you contribute the items that are most urgently needed: peanut butter; canned tuna, salmon, chicken and ham; canned fruits and vegetables; hot and cold cereals; pasta and rice.
The fine print: you must bring at least one non-perishable food item in order to receive a complimentary ticket to the November 18 performance of Comfort and Joy. We cannot accept cash donations to the Central Food Bank.
