Mariemont Players presents OUT OF STERNO by Deborah Zoe Laufer at the Walton Creek Theater, 4101 Walton Creek Road (just East of Mariemont), May 10th-26th, 2019.
Dotty’s life in Sterno with her husband Hamel is absolutely perfect! It’s a fairy tale, it really is. True, in their seven years of marriage Hamel has forbidden her to leave their tiny apartment or speak to anyone, but Dotty is so very happy to spend her days watching video re-enactments of the day they first met. When a phone call from a mysterious woman threatens to tear her world asunder, Dotty must venture out into the vast city of Sterno, and try to discover what it is to be a “real” woman.
OUT OF STERNO is a coming-of-age play in an Alice in Wonderland world. It explores the triumph and heartbreak of growing up and the contradictory societal pressures women face just trying to make it across town.
“Zippy, playful, savvy, and even, at times, delightfully lewd.”
“A play that is almost impossible not to like, combining qualities of a fairy tale and tall tale with those of a wacky comic strip adventure.”
OUT OF STERNO is directed by Dan Maloney, stage managed by Becky Mullins, and features the talents of Patricia Mullins, Julia Hedges, Darren Lee, and Bill Hartnett.
Come visit our beautifully renovated auditorium complete with more comfortable seating, new carpeting, fresh paint, aisle lighting, enhanced stage lighting, state-of-the-art sound, and a sound induction loop for those with hearing aid T switches and head sets for those with low hearing issues.
