Open Wings Theater Company presents “Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them,” a play about three kids - Kenny, his sister Edith, and their friend Benji – who are all but abandoned on a farm in remote Middle America. With little adult supervision, they feed and care for each other, making up rules as they go. But when Kenny's and Benji's relationship becomes more than friendship, and Edith shoots something she really shouldn't shoot, the formerly indifferent outside world comes barging in, whether they want it to or not. The play runs February 15, 16, 22, and 23 at 8:00 p.m. and February 17 and 24 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors and students.
