This weekend – September 3 through 6 – the Mendocino Theatre Company is presenting the final performances of Somerset Maugham’s biting social satire, “The Circle”.
Directed by Ayn Ruymen, “The Circle” is the story of Lady Kitty, who left her stifling marriage to begin life anew with her true love, and her daughter-in-law Elizabeth, who finds herself in similar circumstances with a young adventurer thirty years later. The ensuing dilemma unfolds with wit, satire, laughter and compelling dialogue as only a storyteller like Somerset Maugham could provide.
“The Circle” features the considerable talents of Rachel Archuletta, Raven Deerwater, Sofia Impellizzeri, Dan Kozloff, Toni Orans, Ruby Bell Sherpa, Steven P. Worthen and Bing York. The set has been designed by Nicole Allan and Larry Lawlor, with costumes by Gail Daly.
“The Circle” plays Thursday through Saturday, September 3 – 5, at 8 pm and Sunday, September 6 at 2 pm. Box office at 937-4477
