Darien Players open 31st season with crime farce
Published 4:27 pm, Tuesday, November 2, 2010
The Darien Players are opening their 31st season with a production of "Cahoots" by Rick Johnston.
Successfully produced in both London and New York, this outrageously funny comedy with murder brings the problem of big-city crime home with a farcical vengeance.
Those involved are two yuppie couples who, though obsessed with the dangers of urban living, are hardly prepared for the "crime wave" that they bring upon themselves -- and well apart from the feared denizens of the mean streets outside their triple-locked apartments.
"We are extremely fortunate to have this production directed by Tom," said Ron Heinbaugh, president of the Players. Rushen has directed plays throughout New York City and Fairfield County.
"Cahoots" opens Nov. 5 and will run through Nov. 20. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. and Sunday shows are at 2 p.m.
