WWU Theatre to Present ‘Bedroom Farce’

A wickedly funny play called “Bedroom Farce” is next on the schedule for the William Woods University theatre program. Performances are planned for 8 p.m. on Nov. 29, 30, and Dec. 1, and 2 and at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 3 in Dulany Auditorium.


WWU students in the cast are Kristin Bailey, of Columbia, Mo., as Delia; Taylor Davidson of Kansas City, Mo., as Malcolm; Daniel Saults of Rolla, Mo., as Ernest; Cody Olendorff, of Pacific, Mo., as Trevor; Chelsie Smith of Monroe, N.C.., as Kate; Bethany Hall of Des Moines, Iowa, as Jan; Hunter Nesbitt of Jenks, Okla., as Nick, and Victoria Staats of Farmington, Mo., as Susannah.


“Bedroom Farce” is about “the blithe inconsideration of the suffering.” Trevor and Susannah are a couple whose marriage is heading towards the rocks, and the play depicts an endless night in which they inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest, three other couples.


The play takes place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples’ bedrooms. Trevor and Susannah implicate the others in their public angst and in the course of one long Saturday night ruffle beds, tempers, marriages and domestic order.


The production will be directed by adjunct instructor Melissa Alpers-Springer. Guest artist Dan Springer will design the set and lights for this production and Jane Friedman will provide costume design.
