OTA stages ‘Rose’s Dilemma’

Famed American playwright Neil Simon’s comedy “Rose’s Dilemma” will open Sept. 5 and run through Sept. 21 at Olympic Theatre Arts in Sequim.

“‘Rose’s Dilemma’ has the quick humor and snappy banter Simon is known for,” said director Karen Hogan. “Rose is a writer who is facing financial disaster and has terminal writer’s block. Her dead lover comes back to help her overcome it. Think ‘The Ghost and Mrs. Muir’ meets Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett. It’s funny and poignant and, in the end, let’s us know that love endures.”

Performances will be held on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $16 for adults ($14 for OTA members and active military) and $10 for children 16 and under.

The $10 preview (free for OTA members) will be presented Sept. 4 and a “pay what you will” performance has been scheduled for Sept. 11. All performances will be at the Olympic Theatre Arts Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave., in Sequim.

The box office is open from 1-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Patrons also may buy tickets online at
