BILOXI BLUES at Clayton Community Theatre

Clayton Community Theatre (CCT) presents Neil Simon’s “Biloxi Blues,” directed by Jessa Knust, for a two-week run, May 2-12, 2019 (no performance Friday May 10). Performance times: Thursday – Saturday at 8 pm; Sundays at 2 pm, at Washington University South Campus Theatre, 6501 Clayton Rd, Clayton MO 63117. Tickets available by email at tickets@placeseveryone.org, by phone at 314-721-9228 or at the theater prior to performance. More information: www.placeseveryone.org.

This well-known play, the second in Simon’s semi-autobiographical “Eugene trilogy,” centers on Eugene’s observations of the contest of wills between his drill sergeant and an intellectual recruit at a Biloxi, Mississippi, Army base in 1943. Along the way, he loses his innocence in many ways. It is both a reflection on prejudice and people’s reaction to prejudice, and also hilariously funny from beginning to end; and it is the winner of multiple Tony awards. CCT plans to present the entire trilogy over three seasons.
