Men are Dogs!
Find out if that is true when Charlotte Players presents the comedy “Men are Dogs,” June 11 through 20 at the Langdon Playhouse, 1182 Market Circle, Pt. Charlotte. Dr. Cecelia Monahan has a serious problem. As a therapist who runs a support group for single and divorced women, she must listen to a number of relationship problems from her unusual cadre of patients as well as dealing with the unsolicited advice of her live-in mother on subjects ranging from dating to cooking recipes. The doctor, however, is not above using some unorthodox methods of her own, such as hiring out of work actors to role play with her patients. It is only when Cecelia meets the new substitute package delivery man that the doctor must learn to practice what she preaches! Curtain time is 7:30pm Fridays & Saturdays, and 2pm on Sundays. Tickets are $22 (+1.44 fee) for adults and $11 (+1.44 fee) for students. and may be purchased at https://charlotteplayers.org.
