I’ll Eat You Last Opens in 35below: You’re invited to the Beverly Hills home of the first female ‘superagent’ Sue Mengers. It’s 1981 and the New Hollywood has begun to emerge. The phone’s not ringing so much these days and Barbra Streisand fired her just yesterday. Sue drinks, digs, and dishes the dirt on her famous clients, but on this evening, Sue is forced to face the inevitable truth: shattering the show biz glass ceiling might just get you cut in the process. Starring local comedy legend Betsy Puckett in this one woman tour-de-force that brought Bette Midler back to Broadway. Warning: This play contains profanity, alcohol consumption, drug use, and gossip. Directed by Waylon Wood.

The Autumn Players’ Readers Theatre Showcase Series Presents Good People: Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. With his signature humorous glow, playwright David Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America. Performances are Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28, 2016 in 35below at Asheville Community Theatre and Sunday, May 29, 2016 at the Reuter Center on the campus of UNCA. All performances begin at 2:30 pm.
