    MELANCHOLY PLAY, directed by Jane Jennings, produced by Carla Childs, Randy Shupp & Dale Mezzacapa, centers on Tilly's melancholy. Although it is objectionable to her employer, it is oddly attractive to those around her. She finds herself surrounded by quirky friends & lovers who have fallen under its spell. But what happens when she suddenly wakes up wildly happy? Sarah Ruhl's poetic writing is the counterpoint in this offbeat, poignant comedy about both the beauty & the sadness of life. The live playing of the cello accompanies this play with a powerful soulfulness that will leave you mesmerized as you leave the theater.

    Cast includes: Samantha Simpson as Tilly, Matthew Thompson as Frank, Laura Watson as Frances, Maura McInerny as Joan, Josh Keiter as Lorenzo, & Richard Maurer as Julian, the cellist.

    Old Academy Players has provided continuous community theater since 1923 and featured the acting debuts of both Grace Kelly and Robert Prosky.
