MCE to present ‘Delirium’s Daughters’

FOUNTAIN — Mason County Eastern Schools drama club will present “Delirium’s Daughters” by Nicholas Korn Wednesday, March 18, Thursday, March 19, Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21 at the Sherman Township Hall, 3854 E. Main St., beginning at 6:30 p.m. each evening. The play is directed by Anesa Beilfuss Gulembo. 

When four suitors arrive to ask for the hands of Signor Di Lirio’s three lovely daughters, the old gentleman agrees, as long as they have the approval of their mother. And that’s where the problems begin—the old man’s wife died three years ago, and he has gone so mad with grief that he still believes she is alive. However, one of the suitors is the town scoundrel, Giovio, who plays a series of kind-hearted but hilarious tricks that bring the father back to sanity and the intended couples together. Before all is done, the four men have been forced to dress up as their own mothers, and Giovio pretends to have died and appears as his own ghost to haunt to old man’s home.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, $10 for adults and $5 for students.
