Act your age: Kim­berly Akimbo

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Pulitzer Prize-win­ning play­wright David Lind­say-Abaire’s comedic romp Kim­berly Akimbo opens Thurs­day, Feb. 12, at the Santa Fe Play­house (142 E. DeVar­gas St.). The play cen­ters on Kim­berly, a teenager suf­fer­ing from a rare, proge­ria-like ill­ness caus­ing her to age more than four times faster than nor­mal. As a young woman trapped in a frail, el­derly body, Kim­berly must face the re­al­i­ties of her con­di­tion while deal­ing with her crazy aunt’s hare­brained money schemes, her preg­nant mother’s hypochon­dria, and an al­co­holic fa­ther. Along the way she be­friends Jeff, a ne­glected youth with whom she feels an emo­tional con­nec­tion. Janet David­son di­rects the cast, which in­cludes Ann Roylance, De­bri­anna Man­sisni, and Kelly Kier­nan. The show, pre­sented by For Giv­ing Theater En­sem­ble, runs Thurs­days through Satur­days at 7:30 p.m., with Sun­day mati­nees at 2 p.m., through March 1. Tick­ets are $20, with dis­counts avail­able. Call 505-988-4262 for reser­va­tions or visit www.brown­pa­pertick­ to buy tick­ets. — Michael Abatemarco
