theatre KAPOW presents Is She his Wife? or Something Singular!

Jun 9

2 p.m. - 3 p.m. Adult Programs

Enjoy a theatrical performance that brings the lifestyle and literature of 1890s America to life. Manchester’s own theatre KAPOW will present Is She His Wife? or Something Singular!, Charles Dickens’ most risqué work for the stage. This one-act comedy features such racy material as extra-marital affairs, flippant jokes about adultery, and even a woman displaying her shapely ankle! Deliberately loud and hammy, it is a delightful farce of good-natured coincidences, frivolous misunderstandings and distinctly Dickensian characters. Come early for Jazz Brunch or a tour of the special exhibition Poster Mania!

Doors open at 1:30 pm, space is limited
