The Hitch-Hiker & Sorry, Wrong Number - TWO ONE ACT PERFORMANCES!

The Hitch-Hiker: A ghost thriller, this story has the quality of an anecdote out of American folklore, drawing as it does on the local color and place-names of the United States. It is the tale of Ronald Adams, an average motorist, who sets out to drive from Brooklyn to California, and early on his journey encounters a strange and inexplicable hitch-hiker.

Sorry, Wrong Number: A mystery thriller, the tale of a neurotic invalid, whose only contact with the outside world is her phone. Over this, one night, because of a crossed wire, she hears plans for a murder, which turns out to be her own. Her frantic efforts to enlist help through the only means at her disposal, her growing terror and realization of the truth, and (along the way) the hints about her own life and personality she lets drop, make this a full character portrait not only of herself but of the unseen murderer, whose identity and motivations are surmised but never revealed.

Tickets $10.

This is the 45th Season for Lakeside Players, which produces comedies, dramas, musicals and children’s plays, as well as adults-only entertainment and concerts at the historic Rhode Center for the Arts.
