STAMFORD, Conn. -- Sunday is the last chance to catch the drama of a husband and wife's struggle to overcome alcoholism in Stamford.
"The Days of Wine and Roses" at Curtain Call's Dressing Room Theatre will have its final performances this weekend.
The 1962 Blake Edwards film starring Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick, "The Days of Wine and Roses," as a stage play, is closing out a three-week run.
Directed by veteran Curtain Call director, Richard Mancini, this production has been very well-received by local audiences.
Starring as Joe Clay and Kirsten Arneson, the young couple at the center of this story, are, respectively, Sunny Makwana and Nikki Neurohr.
This drama depicts the slow deterioration of a marriage due to alcoholism as ambitious ad man Joe Clay gets his wife Kristen to join him in drinking bouts that soon begin to destroy their lives.
Using the framework of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, Joe gets up to address the gathering and his story is told in flashbacks that begin 10 years earlier.
How they met, where it begins and how it will end play out in this award-winning drama.
With the help of Alcoholics Anonymous, Joe gets back on his less-than-reliable feet, but Kirsten’s fate takes a bit longer to play out.
The coming weekend performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, March 16, 17 and 18 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 19 at 2 p.m.
The theater is cabaret-style with a bring your own everything (food and drink) format.
Tickets are $32 for adults, $25 for senior citizens and $16 for students and children by calling the box office at 203-461-6358 or click here .
