PITTSFIELD -- Town Players of Pittsfield is presenting its first fully staged production for 2013: "Mass Appeal," written by Berkshires native Bill C. Davis.

Performances begin tonight at 7:30 in K111 at Berkshire Community College's Koussevitzky Arts Center, where the two-character play is scheduled to run through Feb. 23.

Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30.

Town Players' last production of this comedy-drama was in 1985

"Mass Appeal" is the story of a clash of ideology and personality between an older priest, Father Farley, who accommodates in order to survive, and a young seminarian, Mark Dolson, who attacks to face salvation. As each tries to force the other to be a good priest, they learn, in unexpected ways, the nature of courage, friendship and the infinite varieties of love.

The cast includes John Trainor as Father Farley and Will Demick as the young seminarian, Mark Dolson. The play is being directed by Melanie Rivers.

Tickets may be reserved by calling (413) 443-9279 or may be purchased at the box office on performance nights.
