Hovey Players Present "The Porch"
Hovey Players of Waltham present The Porch by local playwright and actor, Jack Neary. The play is produced by Kristin Hughes and Michelle Aguillon and directed by Bill Doscher.
Three ladies of a certain age discussing things that ladies of a certain age discussed in 2004 – like the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal and ALL its ramifications. The ladies are funny, insightful, and incisive. They abandoned their censorship synapses long ago. As the Labor Day weekend continues, we get to know them, and their long-suffering husbands as a mystery unfolds involving one of the ladies and a time in her past that touched her and all her friends. The drama in “The Porch” sneaks up on you as you laugh and laugh. When life attacks suddenly, it is friendship alone that provides the bridge to tomorrow.
The Cast includes Mary O’Donnell, Bunny Porter, Leslie Wagner, Steve Mayer, and Jim Porter.
Join us on Opening Night where we will be serving food donated by Waltham’s Baan Thai Restaurant following the performance. Complimentary wine and snacks will also be served.
