A Restoration Comedy
August 18, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$25
On the Spot Theatre Company brings their entertaining brand of comedic drama to the Athenaeum Center: A Restoration Comedy, the world premiere of a new contemporary play about mother/daughter art restorers and intrigue over an old painting.
When Lord Reginald Addlestone arrives in Chicago with an heirloom work from the Restoration, all manner of havoc breaks loose. Reggie’s fiancé, Tabitha, herself a scion of the pearly Queens and Kings of the East End, does her best to support his royally unsettled aspirations. Meet the mutually devoted, but generationally divided, Becky and Bea, and their respective boyfriends, young Artie with his head in the i-Cloud, and the lawyer/accountant, Stanley, with his own double vision. Find out what happens when a crisis summons a suspicious police detective into the studio just as a mysterious figure also suddenly appears. Love and marriage are at stake. The tantalizing possibilities of the past, should they be conserved or made new? And, what is truly noble or real? Join On The Spot Theatre this summer to find out!
