BTCPA stages ‘The Seven Year Itch’

The Bay Tree Council in Red Bay announces its second production of the 2018-2019 season, “The Seven Year Itch,” by George Axelrod. The show is being directed by Mark Richardson.

Performances will take place Feb. 14-16 at 7 p.m. and Febr. 17 at 2 p.m. at the Weatherford Centre in Red Bay. Tickets for the play went on sale Feb. 4 at the Weatherford Centre, at a cost of $8 each for the play only or $25 for play and dinner; dinner tickets must be reserved in advance.

In this play, Richard Sherman roams restlessly around his empty apartment, bemoaning the fact that his wife of seven years, and their son, have just walked out on him. Then, without warning, a gigantic flower pot tumbles down from an overhead balcony, nearly putting him permanently out of his misery.

The jarring event has a strange effect on Richard. He now sees his marriage as wasted time and feels it necessary to exercise his libido as quickly as possible. Suddenly reborn, he invites the woman who lives on the floor above down for an evening of temptation.

The night doesn’t quite go the way he thought it would, as morality and guilt sneak into his head. In his conscience – literally following him about the apartment – a soul-struggle of heroic and hilarious proportions ensues.

Go by the Weatherford Centre or call 256-356-9829 to reserve or purchase tickets between the hours of 2-4 p.m. weekdays. For group sales contact Beth Hammock at 256-356-9286.
