Hastings College Department of Theatre Arts presents

Fuddy Meers

By David Lindsey-Abaire

This American play is a black comedy about an amnesiac who takes the audience on a kaleidoscopic ride as they see the world through her eyes. Follow along and experience a kidnapping, revelations, and something the New York Times calls a “dark, sweet and thoroughly engaging comedy.”
