GACCI Players perform “Fools” | 20-22 May 2016

The GACCI Players are serious this time. Well, not too serious but it’s not a Shakespeare parody, not Skitz, not a pantomime. Instead you’ll enjoy “Fools”, a great 2-act play by Neil Simon and directed by Gloucester resident Scott Davis. The play is a comic fable so there’ll still be plenty of laughs to be had, you’ll see familiar GACCI faces and a surprise new face…

And don’t forget to bring the makings of your own pre-show soiree to kick off the frivolity in fine style: BYO drinks, nibbles & friends!

The GACCI Players performing “Fools” by Neil Simon

Starring Carol Bennett, Jim Bird, Rod Burrows, Carla Hickman, Maureen Hjorth, Anne Keen, Dave Keen, Tony Kingston, Chris Steel and Dave Windred plus introducing Jim Bird.

The plot is simple but fun: Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Ukrainian hamlet. When he arrives he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and people milking upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon’s job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes stupid.
