<em>Ben & Rita</em>, a world premiere by Wendy-Marie Martin, Hollins MFA '14. This charming romantic comedy was the hit of the 2013 Playwright's Festival. Ben is an eccentric fantasy writer who hasn't left his apartment in 10 years. Rita's desperate need for attention has driven away everyone she's ever known. But when Rita's recently widowed daughter, Eve, and teenaged child, Sammy, come to live with her, the walls are broken down, literally. As Rita and Ben's worlds collide, fantasy becomes reality and choices must be made: continue to live alone in fear or take a chance on love? Tickets are $10.
