‘Jack and Jill’ to fill theatre


By Destinee Flores


Old feelings will resurface between a couple two years divorced in Jane Martin’s “Jack and Jill,” a romantic comedy scheduled Oct. 7-9 and Oct. 13-15 at Cheever Downstage Theatre.

Jack, played by junior Garrett Anderson, and Jill, a role won by UIW freshman Caity Roberts,  reignite a romance in an airport in the play billed as showing “the road to romance may be rockier than you think.”

    May 2011 theatre arts graduate Clyde Compton, who was a McNair Scholar as an undergraduate, is directing the play, which will bring the ups-and-downs of the two characters’ modern upperclass lives through a dynamic and abstract hue of set designs.

   “These people aren’t perfect,” Compton said of his eccentric characters who banter back and forth through their past and present . “(It is] a real modern-day romance.”
