It's your chance to see the early English comedy, Gammer Gurton's Needle
(c. 1553), presented by the Theatre Dept of Centenary College, New
Jersey. With a cast of colorful characters, and set in the "dog-patch"
American south during the depression, this 16th century frolic is
chock-full of physical humor and includes a knock-down tussle between
Gammer and Dame Chat!
Gammer Gurton's Needle is directed by Carolyn Coulson-Grigsby.
Performances are May 1 at 7:30pm, May 2 at 8pm, May 3 at 8pm, and May 4
at 2:30 pm. Centenary College is in Hackettstown, NJ, 50 miles west of NYC.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $6.50 for children under 12.
