Delta drama turns to dark comedy this fall


Delta College’s latest play,“Betty’s Summer Vacation,” opens Oct. 18

The play was written by Christopher Durang in 1999 and was met with strong critical reception, with major publications like the New York Post saying: “The play lifts off from the ground brilliantly naturalistic comedy into the stratosphere of zany satire.”

“Summer Vacation” is a dark comedy about the titular character going to a summer timeshare off the beach to escape the busy life of the city, only to find herself beset by a collection of crazies.

Delta’s award-winning director Harvey Jordan heads this production following the successes of his previous plays.

Performances run Oct. 19, 25 & 26 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 20 & 27 at 2 p.m. at the Alfred H. Muller Studio Theatre in the Locke building.
