The Greater Escambia Council for the Arts (GECA) presents “Four Windows,” a StageStruck production that tells the story of four elderly female friends in an apartment building living a pretty uneventful life, looking out on the world from their windows, until an eligible seasoned bachelor moves in, turning their world upside down and the four of them into amateur sleuths. Mayhem ensues, but is it murder or just a misunderstanding?
Please note: This play contains adult humor.
The show runs for two weekends – Thursday through Saturday, August 10-12, 7 p.m., and Sunday, August 13, 2 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday, August 17-19, 7 p.m., and Sunday, August 20, 2 p.m.
