BETHANY THEATRE TO PRESENT PRIVATE EYES

BETHANY, W.Va. — The Bethany College Theatre will conclude their main stage season April 11-14 with the Steven Dietz' production, Private Eyes. The performance will be held each day at 8 p.m. in Wailes Theater on the Bethany College Campus.

Private Eyes is a comedy of suspicion where nothing is quite what it seems. The audience plays the role of detective in this hilarious 'relationship thriller' about love, lust, and the power of deception.

Matthew (Keven Widener) believes that his wife Lisa (Megan Riggs) is having an affair with Adrian (Adam Longshore), a British theatre director, but is the affair just part of the play being rehearsed or maybe Mathew imagined the entire affair just to have something to report to his therapist, Frank (Leah Muhlheim). Cory (Johnna Valenti), a mysterious woman, seems to shadow the others and brings the story to the surprising conclusion, or does she?

Widener is a sophomore religious study major from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. A junior theatre/music major, Riggs is from Lawrenceburg, Ky. Longshore is a senior psychology major from Robertslake, Ala. Muhlheim of Summit, Ohio, is a senior technical theatre major. Freshman, elementary education major Valenti, is from Avella, Pa.

Luke Hardt directs the play with technical direction by Brian Huggins. Junior Visual Arts major Katie Orwig of Monongah, W.Va. will act as assistant director. The stage manager is Sally Mellring with props by Liz Brewer, a senior theatre major from Pottstown, Pa.

Private Eyes may be inappropriate for children due to strong language and adult content. Admission is free or by donation. Reservations are strongly encouraged by calling (304) 829-7124.
