The Golden State Opens August 8!
Following quick on the heels of MSTW's production of Moliere's Tartuffe, the second show for the 2014 Summer Season is Laura Wilson’s reinvention of the Moliere classic, The Miser, this time brought to present-day Southern California.
Things aren’t what they seem in The Golden State. Gertrude Hopper rules over her children and servants with an iron fist, and her fists are also clenched tightly around her money. She’s such a miser that she’s had the lightbulbs removed from the house to cut back on the electric bill. Her servants are illegal immigrants, so she doesn’t have to pay them a fair wage, and she has some outrageous plans for her two grown children in order to gain yet more money. But the best laid plans for this "Mommy Dearest" are challenged by her children’s desperate bid for love and freedom from her oppression in this hilarious look at greed, lust, and several other "deadly sins."
The Golden State runs August 8th thru September 6th.
Performances are Friday and Saturday nights, with gates opening at 6:30, show starting at 8:00. Patrons are encouraged to come early with picnics, chairs and jackets. The Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre is located on North Main Street in Jackson, next to the Country Squire Motel.
