Stray Kats Theatre Company Planning Staged Reading Of New Comedy



Text Size

The Stray Kats Theatre Company (SKTC) is planning a staged reading of a new comedy by Kate Katcher, The Little Sisters of Littleton.

The reading is scheduled for Saturday, September 18, at 7:30 pm, in the Alexandria Room of Edmond Town Hall, 45 Main Street.

Tickets are $30.

Katcher, who is also the artistic director of the Newtown-based theater company, says she loves writing for today’s senior citizens.

“We are living longer with greater quality than our parents or grandparents ever dreamed of,” she said. “We are vibrant, active, and engaged, funny, curious, tender, and wise. We should be celebrated!”

The Little Sisters of Littleton introduces audiences to two strong, witty women in their 70s. When younger sister Ann sneaks Emily’s ex-husband into the house for a tryst, the bitter divorcée is forced to deal with the man who abandoned her some 30 years ago.

What starts out as a door-slamming comedy soon reveals deep feelings between Emily and her estranged husband.

The play will be performed script-in-hand by Katcher and Don Striano of Newtown, and Carole Schweid of Westport. All are professional actors appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association.

The reading will be followed by a talk-back and complimentary refreshments.

Tickets may be purchased online at straykatstheatrecompany.org or by calling 203-516-0606.

Seating will be socially distanced. Masks are requested for unvaccinated guests.

Founded in 2006, SKTC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit professional theater company with a mission of presenting contemporary classics and new works.
