July 7 – July 25, 2004
By Neil Simon
Directed by Karen Sheridan
Produced by Todd Schmidt
Neil Simon’s comic fable based on a Russian folk tale. Take an idealistic schoolteacher named Leon, add a beautiful but dim-witted girl, sprinkle with an ancient curse that makes the townsfolk fools and you have the ingredients for a charming and funny family tale. Two hundred years ago a spurned lover cursed the town, now Leon has 24 hours to educate Sophia, who has just mastered the art of sitting, to break the curse or become a victim himself! Fools conveys a wonderful message about the power of Love and shows us that often the only thing standing between us and our dreams…is us.
