Harris Yulin and Mercedes Ruehl will star in a reading of William Douglas Home’s comedy “The Kingfisher” on Saturday at 8 p.m. at Guild Hall. Mr. Yulin will direct.
The play is centered on the love affair of Cecil and Evelyn, both in their 70s, she recently widowed after 50 years of marriage. They were in love once before that, and now Cecil is determined to have her once and for all. The humorous practicalities of physical love at a certain age and a fussy butler add to the humor in this romantic comedy.
Tickets are $25 and $23 for members with free tickets for students the night of the performance, based on availability.
