Members of South Winneshiek High School will perform “Parlor Games,” a comedy by James C. Wall, the weekend of March 13-16, at the South Winneshiek High School auditorium in Calmar.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 13, through Saturday, March 15. The matinee Sunday, March 16, has doors opening at 1 p.m., with a 1:30 p.m. show time.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, and are available at the door.
Practical joker Mort McNulty hosts his own wake so he can hear what people will say about him after he’s dead, before he’s dead. Mort’s wife, Tricia, gets unwillingly drawn into the action and apologetically tries to convince everyone that Mort is playing another joke.
We meet a variety of wake-goers -- some there on purpose, some not -- who eventually, with the right amount of suggestion and imagination, convince themselves that Mort is dead and Tricia is in denial.
