By Karen Saari
Directed by Allen Ebert
Madison Theatre Guild sought locally written comedies for this season, a time when we all can use a laugh. MTG got lots of wonderful selections and chose this hysterical play by the wonderful Karen Saari.
Charles’ third wife has just informed him she’s leaving. As he reels from the news and the reason she gives, he spends a weekend with his best friend Jack and their college friend Betsy, an up-and-coming author. Betsy, who once dabbled in witchcraft, reveals a secret from their college days that could be the reason for Charles’ failed relationships.
Can Betsy help Charles win back his wife? Maybe, with the help of a Finnish coven.
Bad in Bed (A Fairy Tale) will be performed on the Evjue stage.
Tickets: $25. Wednesday is “Industry Night” with reduced prices ($20). Discounts are available to groups of 10 or more.
