If you have not seen and don't plan to see it this evening, I recommend you reconsider.

The play, Lying in State, has been so popular that they have scheduled an additional show this evening, Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 7pmCT, at the V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY.

Itís a fine performance by some talented students and faculty at Lindsey.

This is a "black box" show meaning the audience sits on the stage periphery right next to the players.

It's a comedy and very well done. Lots of laughs and a good evening's entertainment. Because seating is limited it's advised to call or email Robert Brock at 270-384-7382 or and let him know you are coming.

See you there. - George Kolbenschlag

Critic George Kolbenschlag was right. Reconsideration on attending 'Lying in State' was well worth it. The scene above, with Greg Blair, as Fred, and Laura Burwash as Edna, in the foreground, Lacy Dal Pont seen in background between them, and David Gougen as Harry, came near the close of the last performance of the Summer 2017 TheatreFest schedule. This play was performed in an intimate Black Box stage with the audience feeling a part of the play, had every seat on the stage - about 55 - filled. - EW
