‘Idiot’s Delight’

October 27, 2008

The NoVa Woodbridge Theatre Group will present “Idiot’s Delight” by Robert E. Sherwood on two weekends in November. Set in the Italian Alps shortly before the start of World War II, the play follows characters who are prevented from leaving the country because war is about to break out. Tensions are high as nobody knows which countries will attack. Roles include a German doctor who is close to finding a cure for cancer, a British couple on their honeymoon, a French communist returning from an international labor conference, a mysterious Russian countess and her arms merchant companion, and a company of American showgirls led by a manager who is a seasoned show business professional and confidence man.
