Join the RI League as the 2nd Story Theater presents:
Racine's “The Suitors”
Sunday, November 20, 3 PM
At: The Bristol Statehouse, 240 High Street
Tickets are $30 each; reservations are due Monday, November 7th.
The fall theater party fundraiser is becoming a RI League tradition. To quote the 2nd Story website about the play,
“Our first full-fledged comedy at the Courthouse! A la mode de Moliere, Jean Racine's riotous rhyming verse romp provides ample opportunity for disorder in the court, ambling iambically from the sacred to the profane. Few escape the writer's comic wrath as translator Richard Wilbur aids in hazing both the legal profession and the lawsuit-happy litigants who keep the judges well bribed, the lawyers well heeled, and the audience, well, in stitches. C'est un tort meringue!”
Please join us at 1 PM beforehand if you like for lunch/brunch at Leo's Ristorante, 365 Hope St, Bristol, at the corner of Hope St (Rte 114) and Church Street. The restaurant is two blocks from the Bristol Statehouse. Parking is in a free public lot on Court St. which runs between the Statehouse on High St. and the restaurant on Hope St. Leo's has everything from soups, pizzas, salads, sandwiches to entrees (generally $10.99 to under $20). The restaurant website is www.leosristoranteri.com. We will make reservations for all who indicate that they are interested; we’ll each order from the menu. To make reservations for the play and restaurant, see below.
Reservations Due November 7. Ticket cost $30
