"Fuddy Meers" is about a very dysfunctional family

In "Fuddy Meers," Columbus State University theater performance major Samantha Hughes, 20, plays Claire, a woman who suffers from psychogenic amnesia. That means when she falls asleep, she remembers nothing about her life when she wakes up the next day.

Hughes, 18-year-old freshman theater performance major Chase Anderson and Evan Fricks, 21, a senior performance major, play the dysfunctional family that is at the center of this dark comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire. Anderson is Richard, Claire's eternally optimistic second husband, while Fricks plays Kenny, Claire's angry 17-year-old son.

The play, billed as a dark comedy, opens tonight in the studio theater in the CSU Theatre on the Park, the corner of 10th Street and Bay Avenue. The play is not suitable for children because of adult language and situations.

The performance times are 7:30 tonight-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $15, $13 for seniors, children, active military and CSU alumni.

Because there are fewer than 200 seats in the Studio Theatre, it is recommended that you call to reserve tickets.
