"Moose Mating," an adult romantic comedy about the mating rituals of contemporary couples, will be staged by Coastal Carolina University Theater Thursday, Sept. 26 through Saturday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 3 p.m. in the Edwards Theater, located in Coastal's Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. Admission is $10 and $5 for students under the age of 18.
The play, written by David Grae, follows the courtship of Betsy and Michael, a pair of ambitious young urbanites who meet, fall in love, and experience the magic and misery of romance in a self-absorbed age. The structure of the play allows the characters to reveal what is going on inside their heads while the story unfolds.
"It's a comedy about the games we play that we don't want to acknowledge that we play in relationships," says Robin Edwards Russell, assistant professor of theater at Coastal and director of the production. "Anyone who's ever been in a relationship will identify with this story."
The cast members, all Coastal dramatic arts students, are Jason Adams, Liz Farmer, Danny Garrity, Matt McCarty and Krissy Schuck.
"Moose Mating" contains adult language and adult situations.
