PSU Theater presents "Fuddy Meers"

Pittsburg State University presents David Lindsey-Abaire’s “Fuddy Meers,” a dark comedy, at the PSU Studio Theatre Thursday, May 1 through Sunday, May 4.

“Fuddy Meers” tells the story of Claire, a psychogenic amnesiac, on her journey through an alarmingly, bizarre twenty-four hours. She meets a curious group of characters including a husband she doesn’t remember, her troubled teenage son, a masked man hiding under her bed, her mother who recently had a stroke and has difficulty communicating, an odd man with a sock puppet, and a woman in a cop uniform. During the course of this day, Claire learns how each of these strange characters is connected to her life.

While the play is filled with comedic and absurd situations, director Megan Westhoff says, “Claire is the epitome of all of us. She is on a journey for clarity. As humans, we are all on a search for the meaning to our lives.”

The cast of “Fuddy Meers” features Tarra Detmer, Eric Obert, Ross Stone, Austin Laverty, Susie Lundy, Austin Curtright, and Katie Farrell. Set design is by Deidre Galloway. Costume design is by Lisa Quinteros, and lighting design is by Dan Williams.

The play runs Thursday through Saturday, May 1-3, at 8 p.m. The Sunday, May 4, performance will be at 2 p.m. All performances will be in the PSU Studio Theatre at the corner of Joplin and Cleveland streets. Tickets are $8 for the general public, $6 for faculty/staff, $5 for under 17/over 65, and free to PSU students with a valid PSU photo I.D.
