FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Classic comedy “See How They Run” is set to be performed at the Walker County Community Theater
June 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m.
There’s nothing like a communist spy to ruin your day. Lionel and Penelope Toop, a British vicar and his American wife, know this fact only too well.
Back Alley Productions invites you to the classic stage comedy “See How They Run.” The family-friendly show will be at the Walker County Community Theater at 10052 North Highway 27, Rock Spring, Ga. Performances are June 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m.
“The play is set right after World War II when nations were very mistrusting of each other,” Director Kaylee Smith said. “But it takes the clash of different cultures — American, British, Russian — and pokes fun at how often we misunderstand each other. It’s one of the funniest plays I’ve seen and directed and something everyone will enjoy. Even though it’s set in 1949, the cast’s clever wit and honest satire stays relevant, and will have people on the floor laughing.”
After Penelope Toop reconnects with an old friend Clive — an American soldier —the two decide it’s worth the risk for Clive to dodge army regulations to go see the production of "Private Lives" (a play the two were in together years ago). Clive changes from his uniform into one of Lionel's unused clerical suits while Lionel is away. One regrettable accident later and insanity ensues filled with mistaken identities and confusion.
The cast of 11 comes from Walker County, Ringgold, Chattanooga, Dalton and Tunnel Hill.
“We’re really excited about this show,” Smith said. “If you’re looking for a night of live comedy— we’ve got it. We invite the entire Walker County community and its neighbors out to the show. It’s one of our best.”
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children and seniors, and can be purchased at the door or online at www.backalleyproductions.org
