And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little
By Paul Zindel
Directed by O. P. Hadlock
August 23 through September 22, 2019
Their father having deserted them in their childhood, the three Reardon sisters have grown up in a house of women, dominated by their recently deceased mother. But time has erased the tender closeness of girlhood; one sister has married and cut herself off; another has begun to drink more than she should; and the third, after a scandalous incident at the school where she teaches, is on the brink of madness. When the married sister comes to dinner to press the need for committing her sibling to an institution, all the pathos, humor and honesty of the play combine with overwhelming effect.
