The North Platte Community College Theater Department will present the comedy, “Fuddy Meers” at 8 p.m. on April 3-6, at the college's McDonald-Belton Theater.
This poignant and brutal comedy traces one woman’s attempt to regain her memory while surrounded by a curio-cabinet of alarmingly bizarre characters, promoters say.
The play follows the woman Claire, who has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. This particular morning, like all mornings, she wakes up a blank slate.
Every twist and turn in the plot brings Claire closer to revealing her past life and everything she thought she’d forgotten. It is one harrowing and hilarious turn after another on a roller coaster ride through the day of an amnesiac trying to decipher her fractured life.
This play contains adult themes and subject matter and is intended for mature audiences.
“Though this play is a comedy, it deals with a very serious subject," said Ritch Galvan, NPCC theatre instructor and play director. "I am hoping it touches the audience and brings awareness to the possible destructive nature of violence in a family.”
The play stars Erin Bone, Taelar Johansen, Ben Hill, Meshka Waya, and Dan Goodall of North Platte, and Caroline Yank of Indiana.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
