BOONEVILLE –Northeast Mississippi Community College’s Division of Fine Arts will stage the Don Zolidis comedy “Current Economic Conditions,” on Thursday, Feb. 23, Saturday, Feb. 25 and Sunday, Feb. 26 in the Hinds Hall Auditorium.

Curtain rises on the evening performances at 7 p.m. The Sunday matinée performance begins at 2 p.m.

Northeast’s veteran drama/speech instructor Christopher J. Schager of Oxford will serves as the director.

Admission is free to Northeast faculty, staff and students with a current Northeast identification card and is only $5 for general public admission.

After losing her low-level job in the publishing industry, 26-year-old Lily has no choice but to move back in with her well-meaning but neurotic parents. A series of disastrous interviews and her parents' strict house rules have Lily feeling more like a troubled teenager than an employable young woman -- and the Justin Bieber posters in her old bedroom aren't helping. Will she find a job before she loses both her sanity and her dignity?

“We’ve been waiting to get to this play for a while,” Schager said, “a funny comedy for anyone with adult children living at home.”

Included in the cast is Alysabeth Nunley of Corinth, Alex Trullet of Guntown, Brandon Strickland of Corinth, Bronson Woodruff of Corinth, Caitlin Garrett of Baldwyn, Christopher Eric Hughes of Ripley, Daniel Steckbauer of Olive Branch, Destiny Hall of Walnut, Gabe Morris of Olive Branch, Madeline McCain of Olive Branch, Jordan Mitchell of Hollywood, Ala., Marshall Grooms of Kossuth, Michael Blankenship of Marietta, Brannon Morgan of Dumas, Rose Wheat of Byhalia, Shelev Walton of Oxford, Telisa DeBerryof Holly Springs, Truli Strickland of Booneville and Jeremy Taylor of Iuka.

Due to the subject matter, the play is not recommended for children under age 8.
