CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – The stage is set for dark comedy, as John Tyler Community College theatre students prepare to step into the spotlight for their fall production, Fuddy Meers. Fuddy Meers is a harrowing yet comedic look at a woman trying to understand her life. The play centers on Claire, who suffers from a rare condition that causes her memory to erase whenever she goes to sleep. Thanks to a bizarre cast of characters, in just one day’s time, Claire’s life takes many twists and turns as she tries to discover just who she is. Fuddy Meers is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.; directed by Associate Professor Kerrigan Sullivan; and performed by JTCC’s Theatre Workshop class.
Performances will be held in the Nicholas Student Center at the College’s Chester Campus, 13101 Jefferson Davis Highway, on December 9, 2011 and December 10, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. and on December 11, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. All shows are free and open to the community. Fuddy Meers contains mature language and is not recommended for children. For more information, contact Kerrigan Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-594-1498. Directions to the College may be found online at www.jtcc.edu/locations.
