The Mountlake Terrace High School production of the Neil Simon play “FoOLs” is being staged this week, with performances on Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 14-16, at 7 p.m. each evening in the MTHS Theater. Admission is $5.
The light-hearted romantic comedy is set in the late 1800ís in a small village in Kulyenchikov, Ukraine, an unfortunate town cursed by stupidity. An ambitious young schoolteacher arrives in the village and is immediately lovestruck with the daughter of his new employer. The teacher is soon faced with a dilemma; educate the stunning daughter within 24 hours of his arrival, or face the prospect of falling victim to the curse himself.
