SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University’s Magnuson Theatre presents The Second Stage Readers Theatre production of “Frozen Dinner.” Written and directed by Gonzaga senior Jeff Rutherford, the show will run Nov. 14-16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Magnuson Theatre, located in College Hall.

This slice-of-life play takes on a realistic feel. Unfolding in the kitchen of Joe, the main character, an unexpected guest appears as the lights come up. The rest of the action develops with the help of people from Joe’s life. Through unlikely circumstances, the play explores ideas of unconventional friendship, making good out of the bad and facing reality.

“This play has elements of comedy, drama, awkwardness and others – just like actual life! Who would’ve thought? All joking aside, I’m very seriously looking forward to this project,” Rutherford said.   

Admission for “Frozen Dinner” is a suggested $2 donation to Cup of Cool Water, a nonprofit organization based in downtown Spokane dedicated to helping homeless youth. More information can be found online.
