This is the second summer season for the East Haddam Stage Company’s 30-minute production of William Gillette’s 1890 Victorian Drawing Room Comedy, All the Comforts of Home. Adapted and directed by EHSCO’s Artistic Director Kandie Carle.
All the Comforts of Home is a fast paced comedy set in the London home of well-to-do banker, Mr. Pettibone, played by Westbrook actor Don Shirer. The merriment begins when he intercepts a letter he thinks implicates his wife, Rosabelle, in a trist. She is played by Farmington actress Virginia Wolf.
Hilarious complications revolve around mistaken identities, miss- communication and one ne’er-do-well nephew, Alfred Hastings, played by Hartford actor Kenneth Lundquist Jr.
Love triangles, squares and circles ensue with the addition of New Britain actress Rayah Martin in not one or two, but THREE roles as fickle Alfred’s love interest. Throw in the mysterious Mr. Smythe and you have a raucous good time!
Who gets whom in the end? And just where does Mr. Bender stand with Miss Fifi Oritanski? Come join in the fun and see for yourself!
This production is presented by the East Haddam Historical Society Museum with funding support from the CT Humanities Council
