Twentieth Century
Directed by Julia Mandel-Folly and Ingrid Rudie
November 12-14, 2009 in the Lasker Auditorium

This hilarious, fast paced comedy will have audiences laughing from Chicago to Grand Central Station! Twentieth Century follows financially ruined theatre producer Oscar Jaffe's zany plots to win back him former lover and leading lady, Lily Garland. Outrageous characters and wild twists drive this over the top farce, complete with a religious zealot writing faulty checks and a plan for a Passion Play starring a menagerie of wild animals. Board the Twentieth Century Limited and enjoy this uproarious adventure!
