Don't Call It A Comeback 

As we humans go through life, we can't separate ourselves from what we've lived. Our experiences cling to us like white cat hair on black pants, and these events eventually are woven into the fabric of our personalities. Sure, some life lessons play out more memorably, but our day-to-day activities affect who we are as well. When we meet someone then, we can't assume that what we see is all there is to a person. There are reasons behind why someone like Georgie acts as she does — and there are reasons why her husband, Frank, drinks as much as he does. Is she really so controlling that she ruined her husband's acting career, as his new director thinks? Or are other factors at work here? As Frank tries to make a successful comeback, Georgie's true self is revealed — and trust, she's more than a simple country girl. Avalon Theatre Company presents Clifford Odets' The Country Girl at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (April 22 through May 2) at the ArtSpace at Crestwood Court (Watson and Sappington roads, Crestwood). Tickets cost $24 to $28; call 314-351-6482 or visit to make a purchase.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: April 22. Continues through May 2, 2010
