9/19/2013 3:00:00 PM 'The Stripping Room' returns to Hoosier
'The Stripping Room', an original play written and directed by Libby Kinman, will return to the Historic Hoosier Theater for three special performances.
The comedy/drams, which tells the story of seven men whose lives are connected by tobacco, friendship, and the small town they share; is set in a town somewhere along the Ohio River between Louisville and Cincinnati.
The play follows Sam Henry as he plays host in his stripping room to several of the locals:
- Mitch, a self-made man whose chauvinistic attitude has earned him many ex-wives.
- Tom, an intellectual whose sensitivity and small stature brings him under constant scrutiny.
- Cy, a ne'er-do-well and a man who lives in a fantasy world.
- Oliver, an elderly but spry farmer.
- Mark, a 'city boy' and newcomer who finds it difficult to make friends in a small town.
- Daniel, Sam's son and a TV newscaster who has 'hit the big time' in Kansas City.
Theater goers will follow the group's repartee and verbal collisions as they explore a myriad of topics, not the least of which is a vanishing way of life on an American farm.
The play will be performed on Friday and Saturday nights, September 27th-28th, in two 7 p.m. performances that are being sponsored by the Vevay Switzerland County Bicentennial Committee.
With that sponsorship, tickets each night are just $5.
The play will make an encore performance on Friday night, October 4th, which is sponsored by the Historic Hoosier Theater.
Tickets for the October 4th performance are $10 each.
Cast members for "The Stripping Room" include: John Kinman, Shane Jackson, Tony Catanzaro, John 'Spike' Wright, Mike Rider, Rick Hoskins, and Michael Heitz.
It should be noted that the play is intended for mature audiences.
