McDaniel to present 'Criminals in Love'

McDaniel College theater students will present Criminals in Love, a play by George F. Walker, at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday in WMC Alumni Hall.

Because of its adult language and story, the play is intended for mature audiences.

The dark comedy tells the story of teen lovers Gail and Junior, and the problems they face because of Junior's family of felons. The play won the Chalmers Canadian Play Award in 1984 and the Governor General's Literary Award for Drama in 1985.

Tickets are $7 for adults, and $5 for seniors and students.
