University Players put Jake’s Women on Essex Hall stage

The University Players production of the Neil Simon comedy Jake’s Women opened Thursday at the Essex Hall Theatre.

The play centers on Jake, a writer who is more successful with fiction than with real life, as he works to save his struggling marriage. The campus production runs through September 30. Wednesday through Saturday performances are at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

On Sunday, September 23, a “Talk Back” discussion with the director and actors will follow the performance. For information or tickets, call 519-253-3000, ext. 2808, or visit
