Theatre misfits Running With Scissors return to Le Chat Noir with A Place in the Sun, an outrageous parody of the 1951 Oscar-winning film about teenage romance, class struggle, and water sports starring Elizabeth Taylor, Shelly Winters, Montgomery Clift, and Raymond Burr.

Our tale centers on George Eastman (Jack Long), who’s weary of living with his pious parents and moves out West to work in his uncle’s swimwear factory. Before his first day on the job, he falls for wealthy society gal Angela Vickers (Brian Peterson), but, fearing she’s out of his league, he settles for gawky girl-next-door Alice Tripp (Dorian Rush). Complications ensue—including a careless roll in the hay with Alice and subsequent 1950s-style “trouble”. Will George honor his obligation to Alice? Or will he follow his lust all the way to Angela’s doorstep? And what on earth is all that waterskiing about? Tune in this summer and find out!

A Place in the Sun runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 6pm from July 11 – August 3 at Le Chat Noir, 715 St. Charles Avenue. Tickets are $26 for Fridays and Saturdays, $21 for Sundays. (All tickets include a $5 bar credit.) Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 504 581 5812 or by visiting this site on or after June 20.
