On March 6 and March 7, Moorestown Friends School will present its winter play “Fools” in the Auditorium. The showtime on both nights is 7 p.m. Tickets cost $12 and can be purchased at mfs.booktix.com.
“Fools,” written by Neil Simon, is a comic fable set in the small fictitious village of Kulyenchikov during the 19th century. Leon Steponovitch Tolchinsky is the new schoolteacher who has been hired by Dr. Zubritsky and his wife Lenya to educate the people of Kulyenchikov. Leon quickly discovers that his task might be more challenging than he anticipated when he learns that the entire town has been placed under a curse of foolishness.
An evil count, a young ingenue and a whole cast of comedic village characters come to play as Leon tries to prove that he can teach someone something within 24 hours — or else, he will become cursed as a fool himself.
