From the dramatic to the zany, fans of Allen Community College Theatre can experience a range of emotions while watching the studentdirected one act plays tonight through Saturday.

THE EVENING starts with a quiet classic in the Tennessee Williams short, “Talk To Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen.” Known only as Man and Woman, Austin Wickwire and Lindsey Temaat quietly offer their take on the nuances of a couple caught in the grip of alcoholism.

Temaat’s stoic portrayal of a wife desperate to escape the endless cycle caused by her husband’s drinking contrasts well with Wickwire’s exasperated, slightly embarrassed husband. He tries to placate her while recovering from a hangover; she just wants to wither into nothingness.
