Mother Hicks

Reitz Theater

“Mother Hicks is a witch, people say,” is a repeated phrase in Susan Zeder’s play about three misunderstood “outsiders” in the town of Ware, Illinois in 1935 during the Great Depression.

The play centers around a pre-teen orphan known as “Girl” who struggles to find her true identity and where she belongs. Mother Hicks is considered an “outsider” because she is a recluse in the hills outside the close-knit town that is wary of her different ways.

Finally, Tuc, who lives in the hills, is also “outside” the community because he is deaf and mute. Yet each of these outsiders seems more grounded than the scared society that shuns them.

In a time of fear and misfortune, the “outsider” must be to blame. The story is narrated by the deaf character, Tuc, who signs as the chorus and individuals speak his “word-pictures.” Zeder’s play evokes laughter, pathos, wonder and mystery and is enchantingly fit for the whole family.

Director Gayle Gearhart urges audience members to park early for each performance in order to delight in the added bonus of live-performance music from the era before and throughout each performance.

Featuring some great local talent from the tri-county area and offering an interpreter for the deaf for three of the shows.  This is a show for the entire family.

Shows are May 1-2 at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors and $5 for children.

Tickets may be purchased at any one of the ticket outlets or by reserving through the box office: 814-375-4274 or reitztheaterreservations@gmail.com.

The Reitz Theater is located at 36 E. Scribner Ave., DuBois. More information can be found at reitztheater.com.
