Moline’s Black Box Theatre Delivers ‘Hate Mail’ This Weekend
The Black Box Theatre in downtown Moline will be presenting the comedy “Hate Mail” by Bill Corbett and Kira Obolensky through June 12.
Performances begin at 7:30 pm except Sundays, which begin at 2:00 pm
“Hate Mail” follows Preston Dennis, Jr. who writes a furious letter to a store demanding a refund for a broken snow globe. In his increasingly heated exchanges with the assistant manager Dahlia, who gives as good as she gets, he gets her fired – and finds a vengeful epistolary match. These two begin an epic, often acrimonious correspondence as their lives intertwine. ”Whether Preston and Dahlia are joining cults, having breakdowns, shipping each other deceased lizards, or falling in love, “Hate Mail” is a two-person comedy full of surprises at every turn” says Playscripts.
“Hate Mail” is the opposite of “Love Letters,” which the Black Box produced several seasons ago. The show features adult language and content.
Starring as the two mismatched, bickering sometime lovers are Matt Walsh and Wendy Czekalski with BBT co-founder Lora Adams directing.
