Julian’s bride, Lily, confused by her husband’s success, becomes a pawn In Carrie’s plan to possess her brother. The play premiered in February of I960 and won high praise for its inten sity and emotional character portray als. The flashes of humor found in the play were seen as a welcome contrast to the seething darkness of the play's intentions. The unlikable characters could not be ignored. A diverse cast of community and student actors show the disturbing bonds between the different char acters. Carol Simons and Tammy Bush, both psychology majors, play the leading roles of the sisters Car rie and Anna. Karla Mitchell, a theatre major, plays Lily, and Tracy Adair is her mother Albertine. Kacey Reynolds, Mary Catherine Southerland, Leah Bumgarner, Shen-Fen Ho and Jennifer Pitts help out as the movers from the moving company, The emotions that these characters are gradually forced to reveal show that they have sur vived by storing them away in their unconscious minds like old toys and furniture in an attic. Toys in the Attic runs through February 21. Performance times are 8 p.m., Wednesday through Satur day, and 3 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens.
