Arden Playhouse presents local playwright Michael Messmer's Wise Guise
. In this modern new comedy, Jeff is a financial analyst whose wealth brings him no satisfaction. In fact, the closer he gets to marrying into a wealthy family, the more unhappy he becomes. His fiancée, Tiffany, dumps him with the warning that he'd better get his head straight. In an effort to figure things out, he pays a visit to wise mountain man Fred -- who's nothing like anyone's idea of a guru. He's sarcastic, likes the good things in life, has his own stock portfolio and has some very weird ways of looking at the world. His new female protégé sees her soulmate in Jeff, which leads to a passionate encounter. Just then, Tiffany shows up to save Jeff from joining what she thinks might be a cult, further adding to the humor. Major philosophical ideologies are assaulted as frequently as the characters assault each other in this unusual comedy. Dean Shellenberger directs.
