One Slight Hitch

by The Staff on September 5, 2013


A bride’s ex-boyfriend dropping in on her wedding day is certainly a cause for family panic. Such is the premise of One Slight Hitch, by Lewis Black–and he knows a bit about panic.

You may know Black as the grumpy old man waving his fingers angrily and yelling about the political outrage of the week on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. But in 1981, Black began writing this charming, suburban-set play. After several rewrites over 30 years, One Slight Hitch finally premiered at the George Street Playhouse in New Jersey, and will now be playing at the Curtain Call Theatre in Latham, directed by Kevin Gardner.

One Slight Hitch will open tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 6) at 8 PM at Curtain Call Theatre (10 Old Loudon Road, Latham) and run through Oct. 5. Performances are Thursdays at 7:30 PM, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets are $23. Call the box office at 887-7529 for more information.
