“Dead Ringer” opens Friday at the Black Box Theater

Performing Arts kicks of the fall season with Dead Ringer, 8 p.m., Sept. 28-29 and Oct. 5-6 at the Black Box Theater.

Tyrus Cole, a horse trainer, lives on a ranch with his invalid sister Mary. Because he can’t watch her during the day, Tyrus has Mary confined to a root cellar. When Dwight Foley arrives at the ranch seeking help with his horse, he and Mary fall in love and begin plotting the demise of Tyrus and their eventual escape. Their plan escalates and in the end, the three find themselves trapped in a complex web of greed and secrets.

The play was a BBC International Playwriting Contest winner and is directed by Mary Matzke.  Learn more at lcc.edu/showinfo.
