UPPER JAY - The Recovery Lounge on Rt. 9N in Upper Jay will present the play, "Opus," by Michael Hollinger on July 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18. Reservation can be made by calling 946-8315.
After firing one of its founding members due to erratic behavior, a world-class string quartet takes a chance on a gifted, but relatively inexperienced young woman. With only a few days to rehearse a grueling Beethoven masterpiece, the four struggle to prepare for their highest-profile performance ever- a televised ceremony at the White house. Their rehearsal room becomes a pressure- cooker as passions rise, personalities clash, and the players are forced to confront the ephemeral nature of their life's work.
Cast includes Robert Andrews, John Spear, Stephen Longmire, Chris Kowanko, and Andrea Hoffman. Scott Renderer directs.
