"OLIVE AND THE BITTER HERBS" Coming To Kentwood

 

Kentwood Players presents the comedy "Olive and the Bitter Herbs" by Charles Busch opening Friday, July 8 through Saturday, August 13 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm at the Westchester Playhouse,8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester.

The production is directed by Kirk Larson and produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete by special arrangement with Samuel French. Featured in the cast are Gail Bernardi, Martin Feldman, Daniel Kruger, Ken MacFarlane and Alison Mattiza.

"Olive and the Bitter Herbs" centers on the life of Olive Fisher, an elderly character actress whose claim to fame was her iconic "Gimme the Sausage" commercials of the 1980s. She is a classic New York curmudgeon at war with the world, in particular her gay next door neighbors.

Her closed-off life is shaken by the appearance of a spectral male figure viewed through her living room mirror. This appearance, along with the help of the father of the co-op's board president and Olive's only "friend," brings together the feuding neighbors for a comedic Passover Seder.

A series of strange and outrageous coincidences reveals that the man in the mirror has intimate links to everyone in Olive's world, encouraging her that it's never too late to change one's life and perhaps find love.

Tickets are $20 with a $2 discount for seniors and students. To purchase tickets, please call (310) 645-5156 during box office hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 4 pm to7. You may also purchase tickets online at http://www.kentwoodplayers.org.
