Center Stage Theatre
In “Invisible Threads,” a mysterious woman asks two down-at-heel actors and their clueless stage manager to apply their theatrical skills to a real-life crisis. At her urging, they enter the lives of a family beset by illness and emotional problems, in the guises of a Dixie-bred maid, an Oxford-educated tutor and a New Age guru. A skeptical scientist follows, threatening to expose them as frauds. Complications ensue when the actors – or is it their characters? – become emotionally entangled with the family and with each other.
