Lakes Area Theatre (LAT) in Alexandria is offering the following productions this week:


Séance is the featured performance on Friday, May 25 at 7 p.m.

It was written by California playwright Chris Gomez. It is directed by Mary Pohl and stars Rexford Sweetwater, Kent Garlinghouse and Gayle Harrington.

The story tells of a U.S. spy with valuable information who dies before he can impart that information. The agency is prepared for just such occurrences with a machine that allows for temporary communication with the deceased.
