"Man with a Load of Mischief," by John Clifton and Ben Tarver.
To be performed at the Alleyway Theatre, Buffalo, NY, Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, June 5 at 2 pm. A pre-curtain lecture on the historical and theatrical background of the show will be presented on Sunday, June 5 at 1:30 pm.

In this sophisticated musical drama, four travelers, unexpectedly forced to spend the night together at a country inn, confront their ambitions, fears, and desires. By turns wistful and sardonic, playful and passionate, Man with a Load of Mischief is a rare gem of lyric theater that also seriously engages with issues of social justice and personal integrity.
