Love, Sex, and the IRS
Monongalia Arts Center is pleased to open its full season of MACPlayers' theatre with "Love, Sex, and the I.R.S.," with 8 p.m. showings on February 28 & March 1, 7 & 8, and a 2 p.m. March 2 matinee in MAC's Tanner Theatre.
This laugh-out-loud comedy tells the story of two young unemployed musicians who try to save money by filling out their tax returns as a married couple. A visit from a lonely IRS auditor, one young man's girlfriend, the other young man's mother, and a suspicious landlord–all at once–throw the two guys into a cross-dressing frenzy of cover-ups, half lies, outright lies, and even some truths.
Tickets are available via phone at 304.292.3325, online at www.monartscenter.com/shop, or in person at Monongalia Arts Center.
