Pittsburgh, Pa. – Carlow University Theatre will present the late Neil Simon’s comedy Fools on November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17 at 8 p.m. in the Rosemary Heyl Theatre, located in Antonian Hall on the Carlow campus.
Fools is a comic fable about young schoolteacher Leon Tolchinsky who unwittingly accepts a job in a small Russian village that lies under an ancient curse—a curse that renders every man, woman and child in the town stupid. Leon soon learns that it is only through education—and maybe love—that the curse will be broken. But he also learns that he has only one day to make that happen, or else he will fall under the curse himself.
Fools will be directed by Steve Fatla. Tickets are $15, $12 for Seniors and Students.
