Beat the winter blues with our production of Israel Horovitz's The Primary English Class which opens February 28 for a two week run in Stage One.
When seven children of the powerful Nachsart Clan left Mesopotamia over three thousand years ago, they spread far and wide across Europe and Asia. Little did they know that seven of their descendants would one day meet in an Adult Beginner's English Class in present day New York City. If Debbie Wastba had known, she would have chosen a different time to teach her first class, or at least she would have been better prepared for the comedy and confusion.
Veteran Bill Klos, winner of the Community Supporter Award at the 1996 K-W Arts Awards, directs this alternately funny and touching play, which features a cast drawn from theatre groups throughout the K-W area, and a couple of newcomers to the region too. Hmm, different groups and foreigners, could it be that art is imitating life? Find out for yourself when you seen The Primary English Class.
The show runs Wednesday, 28 February to Saturday, 2 March, and Tuesday, 5 March to Saturday, 9 March, starting at 8pm each evening. Tickets are $10 each, $8 for KWLT members or groups of ten or more. Reservations are recommended -- call us at 886-0660.
