We are very excited to announce that we have chosen our next production: Idiot’s Delight by Robert E. Sherwood. We are also delighted that Ivey-winning director Craig Johnson will be at the helm.
Winner of the 1936 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Idiot’s Delight is a romantic commentary on greed, idealism, love, and the grim realities of war. Right up Girl Friday Productions’ artistic alley.
Located in the bar of a European mountaintop resort, Idiot’s Delight features an eccentric assortment of characters who are stranded together at the outbreak of war, including a munitions magnate, his mysterious Russian mistress, and an American song and dance man with his chorine companions “Les Blondes.” (And yes, chorines are showgirls!) Girl Friday Productions brings its signature large ensemble cast to this dramatic comedy with musical accents, set in a world on the brink.
We’ll be back on the Andy Boss Thrust Stage at Park Square Theatre June 29 – July 23, 2017. So note that in your calendar app and watch for more info here.
