"Polish Joke," David Ives' semi-autobiographical play about growing up Polish, opens this weekend at the McKeesport Little Theater.
Described by Variety as sometimes "wildly funny" and at other times somber, the 2001 play is the story of a young man, Jasiu. Somewhat embarrassed about growing up in a Polish neighborhood, Jasiu tries to abandon his roots by turning to different vocations and careers, only to find that his past keeps catching up with him.
The play premieres at 8 p.m. Friday (March 10) and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through March 26.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 students, and can be purchased in advance on the Showclix website, or at the MLT box office.
The McKeesport Little Theater is located at 1614 Coursin St. For more information, call (412) 673-1100 or visit www.mckeesportlittletheater.com.
