Buck-nutty for Buck Fever at PACA
PACA brings the mature-themed laughs of Buck Fever to Erie
Friday, May 4
"Atickling exercise in sexual perversity" is how the New York Times described Bill Bozzone's short comedy play, Buck Fever, and now the great minds and talents at the Performing Arts Collective Alliance, or PACA, are bringing the mature-themed laughs to Erie.
Buck Fever tells the story of two hunters who return to their cabin, only to find their wives — revealed as lovers — have flitted away from the premises, taking with them the only car. Outrage at the turn of events leads the two men to concoct a plan, whereby they will retire into bed together in preparation for their wives' return, so they can really teach them a lesson about how ridiculous homosexuality looks. Yeah, that'll show them!
Naturally, once the stage is set and the actors are in place, a third friend of theirs appears with his own date— and he has some things to say about what he witnesses.
The cast, under the direction of Margo Wolfe, will only present five performances of this deliciously vulgar comedy before looking toward their next production, Equus. — Cara Suppa
