Outcast Productions is presenting the comedy, “Schtick,” at the Outcast Theater from May 17 to June 1.

The latest production by the Outcast Theater at the Fairgrounds challenges the audience with a play built around the question, “how can a wife be a nurturing caretaker for a man who has deceived her?”

The answers provided generate laughs, as well as involvement in the story.

“Schtick,” by Henry Meyerson, is directed by Jim Carroll, and stars local favorites, David Mayer, Kathy Stanley and Christina Parker.

Helen’s life became complicated after her husband Murray’s stroke and her sister Gladys’s revelation, wanting to set the record straight in case Murray should die, that she and Murray had been having an affair

Helen is left on the horns of dilemma. How can she be a nurturing caretaker for a man who has deceived her — with her own sister, yet — while knowing he is a snake with no visible conscience?

Performances are 7:30 p.m. May 17, 18, 24, 25, 30, 31 and June 1 , and 4 p.m. Sunday, May 26. Ticket prices are $18 for adults and $14 for seniors and students.
