STEUBENVILLE, OH— The Franciscan University Theatre Department senior directed one acts will present Blind Date to audiences this spring.
Blind Date is about former beauty queen now housewife Dolores Henry who, after many failed attempts, sets her niece Sarah Nancy on a date with a local boy. Sarah Nancy, however, is uncooperative and refuses to play along to her aunt’s dismay. On top of that, Dolores also spends much of her time trying to keep her henpecked husband out of the way so the date can go as Dolores planned. This show is a funny and touching story about social expectations of genders, both male and female. It also explores the masks we wear in order to shape our appearance for others.
Blind Date is a romantic comedy turned on its head, a hilarious take on courtship and
Performances will be held April 29, April 30, and May 1 in Anathan Theatre, on the ground floor of Egan Hall.
Admission is free.
