Clayton Community Theatre presents Biloxi Blues by Neil Simon, directed by Sam Hack.
This well-known play, the second in Simon's semi-autobiographical Eugene trilogy, centers on Eugene's observations of the contest of wills between his drill sergeant and an intellectual recruit at a Biloxi, Mississippi, Army base in 1943. Along the way, he loses his innocence in many ways. It is both a reflection on prejudice and peoples reaction to prejudice, and also hilariously funny from beginning to end; and it is the winner of multiple Tony awards. CCT plans to present the entire trilogy over three seasons.
Performances: May 2 - 12, 2019. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m.; Sundays at 2:00 p.m. No performance Friday May 10.
