Annoyance Theatre In Residence at Wilmette Theatre
Annoyance Theatre in Residence Presents “A Woman’s Path” July 28 in Wilmette
Figuring that North Shore women may occasionally find it necessary to get away from it all, the Annoyance Theatre in Residence is remounting the company’s successful show, “A Woman’s Path,” Saturday, July 28, 2012, 9 p.m. at the Wilmette Theatre, 1122 Central Ave., 60091. Tickets are $15. Beer and wine are available for those over 21.
Written by John Loos and directed by Andy Eninger, the comedy asks: If you're a middle-aged bird hoarder who hates being touched, or a compulsive liar with 344 best friends, where do you go when you've lost yourself?
Tickets available at www.wilmettetheatre.com or call Box Office at 847-251-7424
Retreat yourself this Saturday night!
Fortunately for audiences who enjoy Annoyance’s edgy and satiric psyche, the answer transports us to a weekend at A Woman's Path, a retreat deep in southern Michigan’s wilderness. In a healing journey, the women share circles, trust falls, bear fights, floral blazers, mountains of crumpled Kleenex, gallons of white wine and anarchy with lesbian undertones.
The nearly bankrupt retreat is operated by a repressed lesbian, Iris McGovern, who uses canine-style clicker training to encourage participants to share their feelings. Oddball retreat guests include dark, brooding, and handless, Trista Falls, compulsive liar Pamela Grunt, bird enthusiast/hoarder Myna Pips, sloshed Sylvia Goldberg, and fan of hand-crafted Christmas dolls, Sheila Cankleton (played by the show’s writer, John Loos).
Tickets are available online at www.wilmettetheatre.com or by calling the box office at 847-251-7424. Chicago’s Annoyance Theatre, at 4830 N. Broadway, is this year celebrating its 25th Anniversary. Theatre in Residence presents shows monthly at the Wilmette Theatre, except for August.
