Proceeds benefit Badger High School Theater Scholarship Fund
The Geneva Theatre Actors Guild, in conjunction with the Lake Geneva Movie Theater and the Friends of the Theater, are proud to present Pulitzer Prize winning author A. R. Gurney’s play, The Fourth Wall. The main idea of the play centers around a woman who finds herself at a crossroads in life.
She arranges all her living room furniture to face one wall (the fourth wall) with the idea that she needs to reach through this wall, as if it were a stage front, to the rest of the world or audience. Her husband thinks she is going a little nuts and enlists the help of an old friend. However, all of them start behaving as if they actually were in a play, so, he hires a stage director to take control of the whole mess. Reality and theater collide in a funny, meaningful way. Along the way we poke fun at the New York theater scene, the so-called provinces, academia and even politics. Actors Guild regular Chris Brookes will Guild founders JaNelle Powers, Harold Johnson and Gordon Wisniewski.
The Fourth Wall will be presented in reader’s theater format on Thursday, March 15th at 7:30 pm. A $10.00 donation is suggested and will benefit the Badger High School Theater Scholarship Fund. Don’t miss this fun and thought-provoking theater experience on the Lake Geneva Movie Theater’s old vaudeville stage.
