The Carthage Theatre Department presents the dark and thrilling comedy “Twin Set” Sept. 29-Oct. 7 in Wartburg Theatre.
In this play, written by Chicago Dramatists resident playwright MT Cozzola, sisters Meggy and Betty do everything together; they work together, volunteer at their church together, live together in a cute apartment, and even dress identically in meticulously planned outfits. They are happy in their routine until a former classmate, the cynical Marnie, returns to their hometown to finalize a divorce. Sympathetic to Marnie’s bad fortune, the sisters welcome her into their home and find their world turned upside down by Marnie’s untraditional ways. As Marnie becomes more involved in the sisters’ day to day activities, they find themselves second guessing their way of life. Betty begins to question her past as Meggy looks toward the future. Will the two reconnect and return to their usual routine, or will they discover their lives have been irrevocably changed by Marnie’s arrival?
This Carthage production is directed by Prof. Martin McClendon.
