BLACK BOX COMEDY WRITTEN BY CREATOR OF HOME IMPROVEMENT, ROSEANNE

LA CROSSE, Wis.—The Viterbo University theatre department swings into high gear Thursday through Monday, Sept. 19-23, with a comedy written by Matt Williams, creator of the television hit series’ Home Improvement and Roseanne.

 Performed in the La Croix Black Box Theatre each evening at 7:30 p.m., Daylight to Boonville is a touching comedy about life in a small town.

In the play, "Everything between Daylight and Boonville’s been stripped away," a miner’s wife says. Her reference to coal extends to their lives as the men go off to perilous jobs while the women cope with the anxiety of waiting. Through often-hilarious conversation, the women reveal their messy, complex trailer-park world of philandering men and broken relationships—until a mine explosion changes their lives.

In addition to Viterbo University students and Viterbo University Theatre Professor Susan Rush, the play will feature area children.

Tickets for Daylight to Boonville are $9. Call the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100 for more information.
