Players to present political play ‘Fix’

Proscenium Players’ third show of the season, “The Fix,” by John Dempsey and Dana P. Rowe opens Friday in the Donald W. Reynolds Theatre at the Brewery Arts Center, 449 W. King St.

From a new team of writers comes a hard-edged, hard-boiled commentary on the American political machine. A popular presidential candidate is dead, and his wife, who has power on the brain, thrusts her son into the political spotlight. Her maniacal scheming is matched by that of her crippled brother-in-law, who will stop at nothing to see the boy elected.

The show is directed by Jeff Whitt and Elizabeth Tonkinson and produced by Carolyn Tate.

Show dates are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 23-24 and March 2- 3 and 2 p.m. Feb. 25. Ticket prices are $12 for general admission and $10 for PPI/BAC members, seniors and students. Call 883-1976.
