Front & Centre Stage presents two live performances of "The Philadelphia" by David Ives as part of the "Friday After Five One Act Series"  on Friday, July 9 at 7 and 7:30 p.m. at the Allegany Arts Council's Community Room, 9 N. Centre St., Cumberland. The show presents a young woman who has fallen into "a Philadelphia," a Twilight-Zone-like state in which she cannot get anything she asks for. It takes place in a coffee  shop where she is joined by various inhabitants who are stuck in different "cities" or states of mind. The play is fragmented, paradoxical, twisted, convoluted, and highly amusing. Please call Front & Centre Stage at 301-268-3724 or the Arts Council at 301-777-ARTS (2787) for more information.
