NEWPORT, R.I. – Salve Regina’s theatre arts program will open its 2012-2013 production season with Neil Labute’s “Some Girl(s),” which tells the story of a man who decides to re-connect with a handful of ex-girlfriends before he gets married.
The play will be presented at the Casino Theatre Thursday, Oct. 11 through Saturday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $5 for Salve Regina students, faculty and staff, $8 for senior citizens, non-Salve Regina students and military; and $10 for adults.
The Casino Theatre is located at 9 Freebody St. Tickets may be purchased online at www.tinyurl.com/salvecasino or by calling 401-341-2250.
Directed by Suzanne Delle, who will also perform the role of Lindsay, the play will also feature Katherine Witschen (Sam), Helen Stamas (Tyler), Zoe Seavey (Bobbi), Brigid Sawyer (Reggie), and Jonathan Olivera in the lead role as Guy.
With marriage on the horizon, Guy decides the time is right to revisit his most significant girlfriends from the past. He travels across the country to do so, and the play is set in a series of hotel rooms in the different cities where these reunions take place.
In Labute fashion, Guy’s odyssey traverses a line between genuine attempts at reconciliation and manipulation of women’s emotions, proving that men behaving badly, even with the most innocent of intentions, can cause irreparable damage. In the process, Guy presents both an outrageously funny and deadly serious journey through the heart of darkness that is himself.
LaBute, a prolific playwright, director, screenwriter and author of short stories, has penned such plays as bash: latter-day plays, The Distance From Here, The Shape of Things and This is How it Goes.
