Eavesdrop on a conversation that turns sweet, salty, sour, spicy, succulent and side-splitting in the first theatre and dance performance of the fall 2015 semester. Scheduled for Sept. 17- 27, this slice of life comedy is a dilly!
“Cucumbers,” written by MSU theatre and dance alumnus Le Wilhelm, is set in the Ozarks in 1979.
After receiving an unexpected windfall of cucumbers, nine women gather for an old-fashioned “pickle party” — and the cucumbers aren’t the only things getting pickled! As the women prepare their recipes, gossip and wild stories flow, old rivalries and betrayals surface, and the women reflect on love, mortality and the simple joys of living.
Directed by Telory D. Arendell, PhD. Written by Le Wilhelm with Steven Barrett.
