Modern comedy to wrap up University Players season

University Players completes its 53rd season with Neil LaBute’s modern comedy Some Girl(s), March 29 to April 1 and April 11 to 15 at Essex Hall Theatre.

This hysterical comedy follows “Guy” – a magazine writer about to be married – to four hotel rooms in four cities, where he meets with four past lovers. He hopes to clear the air between them, which proves difficult considering he fled these relationships years ago and used them as material for his articles. Can this commitment-phobe warm his cold feet without getting burned by his old flames?

“The humour is sly and dry,” says the play’s director, drama professor Brian Taylor. “Neil LaBute has written a funny, and honest, examination of the relationship between men and women.”

Wednesday through Saturday performances are at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. On Sunday, April 1, a “Talk Back” discussion with the director and actors will follow the performance.
