Director Carrie Van Tol presents "A Night of One Acts: Delusions of The Heart," five one act plays for a real cardio-workout, exploring the twists and turns the human heart endures to get what it wants.
One -- a search for a precious gift encircles an entire household, upper class and servants alike.
Two -- enter a lovely Broadway restaurant with a beautiful bouquet of roses and a fine lobster dinner. What could be more perfect to suit two hearts that beat as one?
Three -- the bride-to-be reveals the story of a past love to the groom hours before their wedding.
Four -- absence, they say, makes the heart grow fonder? An abundance of love letters and flowers make Ruth the envy of half the town.
And five -- suppressed desires are akin to "festering mental toenails" and may wash a marriage out from under.
All written in the early 1900s, these funny, poignant stories prove little has changed.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 15. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for 18 and younger.
