WICHITA - Wichita Community Theatre, 258 N. Fountain, presents a wild comedy by Michelle Lowe. The Smell of the Kill runs June 7-18 and is directed by John Dalton-White.
Smell of the Kill refers to the animals hunted by one of the women’s husband and stored in a new meat locker in the basement of their home.
Each month the three couples meet for dinner and drinks. While the men adjourn to the living room to play golf, the women are relegated to the kitchen. (The husbands are never seen only heard.)
As the wives clean up the remains of dinner and trade gossip, each woman reveals that her marriage isn’t what she thought it would be.
Meanwhile, the men go down to the basement to see the new prize possession, the meat locker, and inadvertently they are locked inside. Their wives, in the kitchen above, hear tapping and must decide what to do: rescue, call police, or maybe . . .
Performances are Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm. The first Sunday is at 7pm and the second Sunday is a 2pm matinee. Tickets are $14 for adults or $12 for military/senior/students. There is a special opening night ticket price of $10 for all on June 7 only. Call for reservations 686-1282.
