FSC to perform comedy 'The Way of the World'

Franklin Stage Company will stage William Congreve's Restoration comedy "The Way of the World" at 8 p.m. Wednesday in Chapel Hall, at 25 Institute St. in Franklin.

The company also will perform the play at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturdays and 5 p.m. Sundays through Sept. 2.

The show, written in 1700, a media release said, has been adapted to take place in a 1950s fairy-tale version of a resort home, with music played by trumpeter Carleton Clay.

The cast for this classic play about love and lust, marriage and money, includes Peter Gaitens, Hugh Timoney, Natalie Martin and Jennifer Webb. Newcomers to the FSC stage are Zachary Fine, Danielle Slavick, Liz Kimball, Thomas Ohrstrom, John Evans Reese, Andrew Wells Ryder, Maki Borden, and Leonardo Frascatore.

The show is directed by Mollye Maxner, who also helmed FSC's 2011 production of "The Trojan Women."

The performances are free and open to the public, with donations accepted.
