Playmakers' One Act Play - Wednesday at 8 pm

This Wednesday, Our Playmakers will be performing The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild by Paul Zindel.   This year’s One Act Play will take place on March 6 in the YPAC at 8:00 pm. A free cake reception will be held before the show.  In the tiny living quarters behind the Greenwich Village candy store which she operates with her husband, crowded with her collection of movie magazines and beloved television set, Mildred Wild has escaped from reality into a dream world conjured up by the 3,000 movies she has eagerly devoured. And when the outside world does not intrude via her husband, his meddling sister, their quirky landlady, the friendly butcher from next door or the foreman of the wrecking crew set to tear down the building - Mildred meets each crisis with a hilarious fantasy-scene drawn from her precious lode of old movies. As the action moves swiftly ahead to its delightfully unpredictable climax, Mildred’s life is further complicated by such unlikely visitors as a nun, King Kong, and a highly efficient TV camera crew - all adding to the merriment and ultimately to the poignancy which infuses the play and the touching escapades if its kooky and totally enchanting heroine. Please join us for this performance as the Playmakers will be traveling to Mount Desert Island High School for their Regional Competition on March 8 and 9.
