Liberty Theatre to present: The Fourposter, The Case for The Double Bed

 

January 10, 2019



Liberty Theatre will show The Fourposter on January 9,10 and 16,17; all shows at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Performances will take place in The McTavish Room, The Liberty Theatre, 1203 Commercial Street, Astoria.

Taking place from 1890 to 1925, the three act comedy highlights the hills and valleys in the long marriage of Michael, a writer, and Agnes, known only as his wife. After surviving a particulary awkward honeymoon, Michael and Agnes traverse the usual stages of matrimony: childbirth, extra-marital temptations, terrible teens, and eventual retirement. Through all, their ancient and venerable Fourposter stands, serving as a monument to enduring devotion, then finally becoming a symbol of the continuity of life, or rather, living. By jan de Hartog (musical version is "I Do! I Do!").

Donations to support The Reader's Theatre are welcome at the performance.
