AN EVENING WITH RICK FOUCHEUX AND HOLLY TWYFORD
performing scenes from the comic masterpiece
Archy and Mehitabel by Don Marquis
A benefit celebration of Avant Bard’s 30th Anniversary Season
ONE NIGHT ONLY
Monday, October 14, 2019 7:30 PM
The Ark at Signature Theatre
Legendary actors Rick Foucheux and Holly Twyford kick off the 30th Anniversary Season in high style with a staged reading of Don Marquis’ beloved classic. Of Archy and Mehitabel, E.B. White wrote, “It is funny, it is wise, it is tender, and it is tough.” In the New York offices of The Evening Sun newspaper, Archy–a precocious cockroach who was a free-verse poet in another lifetime–hurls himself on the keys of a typewriter, penning insightful free verse poetry for the reporters to discover in the morning. His best friend is Mehitabel, an alley cat who claims to be the reincarnation of Cleopatra, and together their sharp, insightful commentary has delighted readers (and now live audiences!) for decades. Don’t miss this legendary, one-night-only spectacular!
