ROSWELL, Ga. -- A new comedy from Atlanta playwright Topher Payne will have its world premiere run at Georgia Ensemble Theatre next year.
The Only Light in Reno opens Jan. 9 and runs through Jan. 26.
According to information from Georgia Ensemble Theatre:
This brand new play is set in Reno in August of 1960. It is 106 degrees outside. Filming on "This Misfits" is hopelessly behind schedule, with no end in sight. The Sierra Mountains are on fire, and Reno is in total blackout. Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift are playing board games with an accused murderess, and Marilyn Monroe is locked in the bathroom. The hilarious story of when Hollywood came to The Biggest Little City in the World, and everything went up in flames.
