Gun-Shy, the Richard Dresser play that was a hit at the 1997 Humana Festival in Louisville, KY, is going west -- to the B Street Theatre in Sacramento, CA, where it previews Mar. 28 for a Mar. 29 opening.
The play is about a middle-aged woman who halfheartedly pursues marital infidelity.
"Gun-Shy is a finely tuned play that places likeable characters in chaos" without making either the characters or the situations seem implausible, says B Street's producing director and co-founder, Buck Busfield. Busfield founded the theatre with his brother Timothy (of TV's "Thirtysomething") in 1992. To date, the B Street has produced more than 50 new American plays, including seven world premieres.
Performances are Wed at 6:30 PM, Thu. and Fri. at 8 PM, Sat. at 5 PM and 9 PM and Sun. at 2 PM.
For tickets, $15.50-$19.50, call (916) 443-5300. -- By Rebecca Paller
