Ignite! Community Theatre draws on a diverse group of talented local thespians to engage audiences with meticulously produced shows. The Lying Kind offers patrons a morbidly comic Christmas story that deftly melts the cloying sweetness left over from saccharine holiday movies and fiercely competitive candy-cane-eating contests. The play weaves the tale of two British constables, prepping to deliver heartbreaking news to an old couple before heading home for Christmas Eve, all while navigating a village mob. Razor-sharp wit and inky-black humor tickle ribs throughout the show, which takes place in the intimate yet elegant Commandery Room. A wraparound balcony treats audiences to elevated viewing, and a black- and white-checkered floor encourages postshow games of human chess.
Though Ignite! Community Theatre offers discounted tickets for seniors, students, and members of the military, today’s Groupon still offers the best deal available for most customers.
