Playful comedy at the Bothwell Theatre supports three local organizations

United-Way 2“Love, Sex & The IRS”, a comedy by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, hits the Jim Kish Bothwell Town Hall Theatre November 26 through 29.

Presented by United Way of Chatham-Kent in partnership with the Thamesville Improvement Association and Boomtown Players, proceeds from the show will support United Way’s Annual Campaign, the Thamesville Splash Pad and a new sound and projection system for the Bothwell Town Hall Theatre.

Set in 1970s New York City the story revolves around two male roommates, Jon (played by Al Lozon) and Leslie (played by John Harris) who have been filing tax returns stating that they are a husband and wife. Now, the IRS is about to audit them. Hilarity ensues with this crazy cast of characters.

“The cast and crew are from all over Chatham-Kent with ties to theatre groups such as the Thamesville United Church Drama, Ridge Players, the West Elgin Dramatics Society, and Boomtown Players. We are also welcoming some exciting newcomers to the stage,” said Producer and long-time Boomtown Players member, Jackie Beatty. The play is directed by Thamesville’s Janice Sellen who directed Thamesville United Church plays for many years and last year’s Theatre Kent production “Out of Order”.

Tickets for the play are $15 and can be purchased by calling the United Way at 519-354-0430.

Dinner Theatre is available on Sunday, November 29 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bothwell Legion Branch 252 for an additional $15.
