Mrs. Parliament’s Night Out, Week 2 – City Park Players
April 6 - April 9
Join City Park Players for Mrs. Parliament’s Night Out by Norm Foster. Mrs. Parliament’s Night Out will be performed Thursdays through Sundays from March 30th to April 2nd and April 6th to 9th at the Hearn Stage at the Kress Theatre. Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7:30 PM, and Sunday matinees begin at 2:30 PM.
Teresa is an adorable, innocent woman in her 50s. She is easily shocked by risque lingerie but charmingly direct and open with everyone, from junkies to a forbidding singing teacher.
Urged by her grocer to spice up her life, she goes from camera club to salsa to bowling to archery with hilarious results. However, Foster goes deeper than antics to examine the nature of human relationships and the self, given the shortness of our lives.
Foster demonstrates his gift for one-liners and situation comedy that reflects ordinary-lived experience. This rewarding, funny play gallops to a warm-hearted, communal conclusion.
