Kitimat’s On Cue players are back on stage next year in February for the production of Jon Lonoff’s Skin Deep.
In the play, a large, lovable, lonely-heart, named Maureen Mulligan, gives romance one last shot on a blind date with sweet awkward Joseph Spinelli.
They were set up on the date by Maureen’s sister Sheila and her husband Squire, who are having problems of their own. Sheila undergoes a non-stop series of cosmetic surgeries to hang onto the attractive and much-desired Squire, who may or may not have long ago held designs on Maureen, who introduced him to Sheila.
With Maureen particularly vulnerable to both hurting and being hurt, the time is ripe for all these unspoken issues to bubble to the surface. Skin Deep will play at the Mount Elizabeth Theatre on February 14, 15 and 16, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
