Tupperware parties, wife-swapping, life in a middle-class English housing complex . . . it's all just too dehumanizing for words. That's the premise of "One for the Road," the cutting, sarcastic comedy that concludes the Irish Classical Theatre Company's 2002-2003 season. Written by Willy Russell, who also wrote "Shirley Valentine" and "Educating Rita," the play tells of a man who, feeling spiritually empty, undergoes a midlife crisis to end all midlife crises.
Directed by Derek Campbell, "One for the Road" features Colleen Gaughan, Vincent O'Neill, Margaret Massman and Guy Balotine as the midlife crisis sufferer. The play opens Thursday in the Andrews Theatre, 625 Main St., and runs through June 22. (Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays through June 22.)
Regular single ticket prices are $23, with discounts for seniors and students. Call 853-ICTC.
