‘Anne Then Some’ will be the second show in Studio Theatre this term. The series will continue with ‘Laundromat’ and ‘The Language Archive’ showing later this fall.

Fradkin’s description of the play reads, “You are raspberry cordially invited to Prince Edward Island, home of carrot-top-of-the-line literary heroine Anne Shirley and her bosom friend Diana Barry. These kindred spirits have some contemporary company: Vernie and Cori, teenage visitors who meet for the first time while having a field day at Field Day at Green Gables Heritage Place. Is it love at first “site”? Anne and Diana solemnly swear their faithfulness to one another within minutes of meeting. Will Vernie and Cori duplicate their devotion?”
