St. Luke’s Players Community Theatre is busy preparing for the 1960s drama I Never Sang for My Father.
Written by Robert Anderson and directed by Janine Longy and Gali Bertlett, I Never Sang for My Father opens Wednesday night, March 11 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Luke’s Church at Cedar Hill and Cedar Hill X roads.
The story sees 40-year-old Gene, a college professor and a year into widowhood, ready to move from New York City to California to marry a divorcee. However, he is torn by his desire to start a new life and his guilt over leaving his frail parents. He is determined to resolve a lifelong conflict between himself and a domineering father.
This play, according to organizers, is “deeply moving, remarkably timely, and touches those experiencing family, aging, and loss.” The theme of father-son alienation is well developed in the creative set design, lighting, sound, props and set decor.
Get your tickets online, at the door, or in person at The Papery on Fort Street downtown. The show continues to run at 7:30 each evening March 11-14 and March 18-21. Matinees run at 2 p.m., March 14, 15, 21 and 22.
