The ENC Theatre Department will present its production of Neil Simon’s comedy Fools at 7:30pm April 11-13 at the Cove Fine Arts Center.

Set in an idyllic Russian hamlet, Fools tells the story of Leon Tolchinsky, who arrives at his new teaching assignment only to learn that the entire village is suffering from a 200-year-old curse of stupidity. As Leon navigates a village where cows are milked upside down to get more cream and housewives sweep dirt from the street into their homes, he falls in love with a local girl and attempts to break the curse before it claims him as its latest victim.

Directed by Edward Barker, Fools will be performed by a cast of 10 ENC students and features slapstick and Vaudeville-style comedy, making it a fun theatrical experience for the entire family.

Tickets for Fools are $10 general admission, $8 students and seniors, and $5 for ENC students and children 12 and under. For tickets or more information, call the ENC box office at 617-745-3715 or visit www.brownpapertickets.com.
