The Roommate

02:00 pm to 03:40 pm
Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay
http://cardinalstage.org

Cardinal Stage presents “The Roommate” January 30 – February 22 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay. Recently-divorced Sharon is searching for a roommate to share her Iowa home. She couldn’t have imagined that a mysterious New Yorker named Robyn would be the answer to her problems. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they spark a desire to transform her own life completely. This smart new comedy tackles the challenges of mid-life reinvention, with unexpected results. “The Roommate tugs at the heartstrings as much as it tickles the funny bone.” ~ Louisville.com

Featuring local favorite Constance Macy (Nurse Ratched, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest)!
