The Ice Fishing Play

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Feb. 19 2017

In Minnesota, ice fishing is more than a sport. It's a way of life. If everything goes perfectly, you get your shack out on the lake as soon as the ice is thick enough to support it, and youll be there every weekend until your feet start getting wet. Ron Huber made it to his shack, but he's deriving very little enjoyment from it this year. Instead of enjoying some solitude he ends up entertaining a steady stream of visitors. There are his wife Irene, his brother Duffer, a pair of preachers who just sorta show up, another ice fisher — he's caught quite a crowd, but no fish. Kevin Kling's The Ice Fishing Play is a comedy about a man with everyday dreams who never seems to attain them, but is still doing all right. West End Players Guild presents The Ice Fishing Play at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (February 10 to 19) at Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Boulevard; Tickets are $20 to $25.
