Puzzle at the Piazza to run from March 11-20 at the Marion Art Center

Mar 5, 2022

The Marion Art Center’s first play of the season, ‘The Puzzle with the Piazza,’ will debut on March 11.

The play, a full-length comedy-drama by Mark Dunn,  tells the story of septuagenarian Althea Witlin, who has one jigsaw puzzle among her large collection that she’s never worked. It contains 3,000 pieces and she has less than a day to finish it, because poor health has forced her to move in with her younger sister … without her puzzles.

The cast includes Oliver Asker, Cynthia Latham, Stephanie Lawrence, Susan Salveson, and Susan Sullivan, with Donn Tyler as stage manager, sound and lighting by Steven McManus, and radio characterization by Tristan McCann.

The show will be performed on March 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, and 20. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows will be performed at 7:30 p.m., and on Sundays, the show will be performed at 2 p.m.

Tickets cost $18 for MAC members and $20 for non-members. Tickets are available online now at marionartcenter.org/events.

All guests must provide proof of full vaccination to be allowed entry into the MAC Theater. Negative tests will no longer be accepted in lieu of vaccination. Each guest must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the Marion Art Center.
