SCRT presents The Star Spangled Girl
October 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Friday, repeating until October 25, 2019
Neil Simon’s fast moving comedy, set in San Francisco in the 1960s, hilariously tackles love, friendship, politics, and the friction between all three.
The story is a love triangle. Andy and Norman are roommates and radicals who barely make a living working on their protest magazine, Fallout, which is dedicated to fighting “the system” in America. Sophie, a former Olympic swimmer, is an all-American Southern girl who moves into the apartment next door.
It’s love at first sight (or, as the play has it, first smell) for Norman, but his feelings are not reciprocated. Norman’s obsession with Sophie makes Andy hire her just to keep the magazine going. Then Sophie falls for Andy, though they are at odds politically, threatening to destroy the magazine and the men’s friendship.
Suitable for all ages.
