The Gods of Comedy by Ken Ludwig at Old Courthouse Theatre *REGIONAL PREMIERE*
What do you do when you’re a Classics professor at one of the greatest universities in America and find a long-lost manuscript by Euripides that will make you famous throughout the world? You lose it, of course. And then you call on the Ancient Greek Gods of Comedy to get you out of the mess. For young professor Daphne Rain, the first surprise is that the gods show up. And the second surprise is that any two people – even if they are gods – can wreak so much havoc on one university. The Ivy League will never be the same as a pair of screwball deities encounters the carnal complexity of college coeds, campus capers, and conspicuous consumption.
Performance Dates: August 17-19 & 25-26 at 7:30 pm, August 20 & 27 at 2:30 pm. Tickets are available at octconcord.com, at the door 45 minutes before show time or by calling 704-788-2405.
