Event Details

Towngate Theater presents The Widow’s Tale by Wheeling playwright Paul Orr August 10 and 11, 2018.  Curtain is at 8pm.

The play follows Carol, a widow in her early 40s, seeking to remarry who begins frequenting funeral homes, hoping to snag a widower. It’s not just any man she seeks. She is on the prowl for an “upgrade” –  a man of financial means who will provide her with a life of luxury. Carol’s plan takes a sudden turn when she encounters an old flame, and gets an unexpected surprise.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted to support Towngate Theatre. Reserve seats online or call 304-242-7700.
