Theatre Young Harris to Present Farcical Comedy “Out Of Order”
YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College’s Theatre Young Harris will present seven performances of English playwright Ray Cooney’s rollicking farcical comedy “Out of Order.” Performances are scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 10, through Saturday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 13, at 2 p.m., and Thursday, Nov. 17, through Saturday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. All performances will take place in Dobbs Theatre located inside Goolsby Center on the YHC campus. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors 65+ and with YHC ID.
Directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Fulton, “Out of Order” takes a look at the lighter side of political infidelity. Hilarity, crazy antics and a grand cover-up scheme commence as a junior politician attempts to cover up an affair with the opposition when nothing goes as planned. The show is recommended for mature audiences only.
