The Awful Truth
April 20-May 13, 2018
In this gem of a comedy, the inspiration for the 1937 screwball film starring Irene Dunne and Cary Grant, a divorcee with expensive tastes and limited means plans to tie the knot with a wealthy Oklahoma oil-man. But before his domineering aunt will accept the 'blushing bride,' she must dispel the persistent rumor that her infidelity drove her first husband to divorce her. ICTC breathes new life into this rarely produced comedy, unearthed in the archives of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts by Fortunato in 2011.
Running time: 2 hours, including one 10 minute intermission.
Directed by ICTC Producing Director, Fortunato Pezzimenti
