St. Louis Theater Capsules 

Dennis Brown and Paul Friswold encapsulate the St. Louis theater scene

The Faculty Room Fontbonne University alums want to help raise money for the undergrads' trip to the American College Theatre Festival. Rather than put on a bake sale or car wash, the grads are staging a play. Nifty idea. As the title suggests, Bridget Carpenter's very dark comedy is set in the faculty lounge of a high school no one should have to attend. The action focuses on three teachers: English (Robert A. Mitchell), drama (Bess Moynihan) and history (Craig Hinders). As you might expect, lots of secrets get revealed by evening's end. But in a setting where the professors are more infantile than the students, there's nothing in the preceding two and one-half hours to justify the play's final line: "Everything's gonna be OK." Presented by Fontbonne University Performing Arts Alumni through August 17 at the Fine Arts Center Theater, 6800 Wydown Boulevard, Clayton. Tickets are $8 ($5 for students and seniors). Call 314-889-1425. — Dennis Brown
