Department of Theatre Presents Boy Gets Girl
November 01, 2011
The University of Mount Union’s Department of Theatre will present Boy Gets Girl by Rebecca Gilman on November 17, 18 and 19 at 8 p.m. in the Rodman Playhouse on Mount Union’s campus.
Boy Gets Girl is about every girl’s worst nightmare – a blind date gone bad. Theresa, a successful, care-minded, city girl, wants to see if she can make her life perfect by finding the right guy to spend her life with. Doing what many women dread to do, she goes on a blind date with Tony. Unfortunately, after the second date, Theresa is ready to move on, but Tony isn’t. Theresa’s life drastically changes as Tony stalks her and others around her. His romantic obsessive drive to have her “complete” his life becomes a dangerous, torturous hunt. Boy Gets Girl is for mature audiences only.
