Nothing -- not war, drugs, revelation or even plastic surgery -- transforms people like the power of love. Even so, few transformations are as shocking as the one at the heart of Mrs. Charles, the new play from Ruth Virkus. It's 1878 and Charles and Walter are in love, but the harsh realities of Philadelphia society forbid even the slightest hint of a relationship. So, when Walter is later offered a chance to open a milling concern in Minneapolis, the two lovers hatch an audacious plan: arrive in booming "Mill City" as Walter and Charlotte. This bold and risky decision illuminates every facet of this historical romance from Freshwater Theatre Company. Jimmy LeDuc directs at the Nimbus Theater. Learn More

Not a dramatic experience for everyone. Language and sexual content may offend some, but I think the grittiness is an accurate reflection of the dramatic environment the playwright is attempting to establish.
The cast was strong and compelling. A unique and satisfying night of theater.

“Cooper’s strong ensemble gives Thurber’s dialogue life … Becka Linder’s Franky is a masterful portrayal of the high school beauty facing a lifetime of diminishing returns, while Anthony Neuman creates a Tony that’s a complicated blend of paternalism, insecurity and burgeoning violence.” —Star Tribune
