Mask & Hammer to present “The Shadow Box”

The Mask & Hammer Theatre Club will present “The Shadow Box” at the Hamblin Theatre in the Fine Arts Center from March 21-24. March 21-23 showings will be at 7:30 p.m. and the March 24 showing will be at 2 p.m. The production is by Michael Cristofer and directed by Lisa Bianco.

“The Shadow Box” is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play about three terminally-ill cancer patients who face physical and emotional challenges as they approach the end of life. The three are attended and visited by family and close friends: Agnes and her mother Felicity, estranged further by the latter’s dementia; Brian and Beverly, whose marital complications are exacerbated by Brian’s new lover, Mark; and Joe and Maggie, unready for the strain of Joe’s impending death and its effect on their teenage son.

Tickets for the show go on sale March 11. Tickets are available at the Hunt Union box office from 1 to 10 p.m., seven days a week, or by reserving online at tickets.oneonta.edu. Also available at the door one hour prior to performance.
