Fall Theater Production Examines Lives Of Women

The play Fefu and Her Friends by  Maria Irene Fornes, directed by Professor Beverly Redman, will be performed Wednesday through Saturday, Oct. 5 through 8, at 7:30 p.m. in The Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center’s Lenfest Theater.

Tickets are $5 general admission and $2 for students and senior citizens. For information and reservations, please call the box office at 610-409-3795.

The play follows a group of women who get together to plan a show, but their interactions result in a much different production. The story unfolds gently over one day, focusing on the characters of eight women, and the conflicts or issues each is facing. As each woman struggles to connect with the others, she finds that she has no other choice but to confront herself. The audience is invited in as these journeys begin, quite literally entering the playing space and breaking the distinction between audience and actors.
