“The Octette Bridge Club” Opens Aug 26th

The Octette Bridge Club cast

 “The Octette Bridge Club”, written by P.J. Barry, and directed by Brenna Sage, is set in Providence, Rhode Island in the 1930s and 40s. On alternate Friday evenings, eight sisters meet to play bridge and gossip. The first act takes place in 1934; the second ten years later during a Halloween bridge party where each acts out her costume’s persona. The emotionally distraught youngest, who does a hilarious Salome belly dance, has just gotten out of a sanitarium and knows that she must
cut the bonds to her smothering family and strike out on her own. Don’t miss this sentimental comedy about American life in a bygone era.

Ann (Margaret Page) shows off her Cleopatra costume
