"Lettice and Lovage" @ The Point Theatre in Ingram

“Lettice and Lovage,” directed by Nancy Reagan, continues its hilarious run on The Point Theatre’s indoor stage. The charming British comedy by Peter Shaffer runs through Oct. 16 with performances Friday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Maggie Meek plays Lettice Douffet, an eccentric tour guide and expert on Elizabethan cuisine and Tudor weaponry. She works at one of Britain’s dullest historic homes and decides to embellish its past after her groups dwindle from boredom.

Lettice’s tours are met with applause, but her success is cut short by Lotte Schoen, played by Louise Kohl Leahy, an inspector from the Preservation Trust who fires her for “gross departures from fact and truth.” Later, the two become fast friends as they enact famous historical trials and executions.

The cast includes Barbara French, Graydon Vaught, Kevin Jones, Shanthi Cleckler, Russell French, Gay Hibdon, and Jaydea House.

Guests may view “Think Ink,” an exhibit of hand-pulled prints by the Johnson Creek Press, in the Gallery at The Point one hour prior to all theatre performances.

For reservations or more information, call the box office at 830-367-5121 or visit www.hcaf.com. The Point Theatre is located at 120 Point Theatre Rd. South in Ingram.
