The Strollers, The Community Theater Company in Residence at The Burgdorff Center in Maplewood, has announced the cast of their upcoming production of the dark comedy Fuddy Meers, by David Lindsey – Abaire.
Fuddy Meers tells the story of an amnesiac, Claire, who awakens each morning as a blank slate on which her husband and teenage son must imprint the facts of her life. One morning Claire is abducted by a limping, lisping man who claims her husband wants to kill her. The audience views the ensuing mayhem through the kaleidoscope of Claire's world. The play culminates in a cacophony of revelations, proving that everything is not what it appears to be.
Linda Hatcher of Warren, plays Claire, the amnesiac and John Fraissinet of Nutley and Rob Bazaral of Madison play her hospital worker husband and her teenage son. Other cast member include Fran Shultz of East Orange as Gertie, Claire’s mother, Jeff Taylor and John Mendlovitz of Montclair as The Limping Man and Millet. Rounding out the cast is Jeanette Ricci of Roselle Park as Heidi. The production is directed by Keith Hoovler of Maplewood.
Fuddy Meers production dates are March 6, 7, 13 & 14 at 8 PM and March 8 at 2 PM. Tickets are $20 for Adults and $15 for Students/Seniors.
