Taking Flight Theatre Company (in residence at NOVA Loudoun) closes its 2011 season with Theresa Rebeck’s hilarious urban comedy “Loose Knit” on October 21 to 23, 28 to 30, and November 4 to 5. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday performances are at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors, and can be purchased online or at the door – cash or check only. All performances will be at the Waddell Theatre on NOVA’s Loudoun Campus.

The sarcastic comedic story follows five women who on a weekly basis, nestle in the heart of New York City and find comfort in a knitting circle. As the sweaters pile up, their lives unravel. Liz is having an affair with her sister’s husband, Gina’s lost her job, Paula is having an identity crisis and Margie just wants a date. Enter: Miles, a swaggering businessman who made his first million before he turned 30, and only needs a wife to complete his life. While seemingly supportive, these backstabbing women go head to head in a series of blind dates, who together with Miles attempt to define what men and women really want. The cast includes: Caity Brown (Washington, D.C.), as Gina; Jackie Davis (Sterling, Virginia), as Lily; Jenny Girardi (Reston, Virginia), as Liz; Kate Keifer (Herndon, Virginia), as Margie; Anissa Parekh (Alexandria, Virginia) as Paula; Stu Fisher (Vienna, Virginia) as Miles; and Wayne Jaques (Ashburn, Virginia) as Bob. Produced by Christy Jacobs (Sterling), “Loose Knit” will be directed by Haley Murphy (Great Falls, Virginia) and stage managed by Colleen Stock (Ashburn). Contact Natalie V.
