SLO Little Theatre Presents "Independence" Benefit Night with The Monday Club of San Luis Obispo
Join The Monday Club for the dress rehearsal of Independence, an award-winning drama by the author of A Walk in the Woods, The War of the Roses and Fortinbras.
The doors will open at 6:00 p.m., come mingle with Club members, family and friends and enjoy fabulous passed hor d'oeuvres and a glass of wine (available for purchase by the glass). The play will start at 7:00 p.m. and delicious home-made desserts will be served during intermission.
This remarkable play written by Lee Blessing, is set in the small town of Independence, Iowa, the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs. Her oldest daughter, Kess, is a university professor in Minneapolis, but she has come home at the request of her sister Jo who is concerned for Evelyn's mental health. Kess, a professed lesbian, wants to cut her family ties once and for all; Jo, an incurable romantic and longtime virgin, is the homebody of the three; while Sherry, salty-tongued and amoral, wants only to finish high school so she can leave home for good. Independence is a powerful, disturbing study of a family divided against itself.
This proceeds from this fundraising event benefits The Monday Club Tri-Awards Scholarships for music, art and scholastic achievement for local graduating high school seniors.
