‘One Slight Hitch’ comes to Kent State Stark

Kianna Bugglin

Cast and crew gathered Thursday evening for a final tech and dress rehearsal for Lewis Black’s play “One Slight Hitch,” set to open this weekend at the Kent State Stark campus.

Set in 1980s Ohio, this romantic satirical comedy begins the morning of a big day in the Coleman family — the day of their daughter’s marriage, said director Brian Newberg.

Things begin to run amuck as the ex-boyfriend of the bride-to-be shows up at the front door completely unannounced. Unaware of her engagement, he comes to share his stories of his travels as an emerging poet.  

As the first theatrical event of the 2014-2015 year, “One Slight Hitch” will run on Nov. 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 8 p.m. and on Nov. 9 and 16 at 2:30 p.m. at the Stark Theatre.

Tickets can be reserved by visiting www.stark.kent.edu/theatre or by calling the Kent State Stark Theatre Box Office at 330-244-3348, Mondays through Fridays from 1 to 5 p.m. Tickets are free for all Kent State students, $10 for adults and $7 for non-Kent State students, children under 17 and senior citizens.
