Love, reason and geography get put to the test when the Players Guild of Dearborn presents Neil Simon’s FOOLS. Directed by Brian Townsend, performances are Friday, Jan. 12 through Sunday, Jan. 28 at the Players Guild theater in Dearborn.
In the comedy: Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. When he arrives, he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and others milking cows upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon’s job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so Stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.
