Whidbey Playhouse farce begins Friday
January 29, 2013 · 4:04 PM
All Dr. Mortimer wants to do is deliver the Ponsonby Lecture. But things go from bad to worse for him as his ex-lover arrives to reveal they have a son minutes before the lecture in the British farce “It Runs in the Family.”
Expect unending laughter as Dr. Mortimer must fend off a paternity suit, punk daughter and ex-wife, plus the assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else.
The fun begins Friday, Feb. 1 at the Whidbey Playhouse and shows run through Feb. 17. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays.
“It Runs in the Family” is written by Ray Cooney and directed by Bob Hendrix.
Tickets cost $16 and are available by calling 360-679-2237.
The Playhouse is located at 730 SE Midway Blvd., Oak Harbor. For details, visit whidbeyplayhouse.com.
