What do you get when you put together teenage marriage, the death of a parent, integration issues and bowling? Well, you have While We Were Bowling, a play by Carter W. Lewis. This heartbreakingly honest portrayal of a 1950’s family struggling to remain intact through a teenage marriage, paternal death, integration of a young African-American boy to the family and the pressure of the legacy of bowling is coming to the Williamston Theatre. Lewis does a fantastic job capturing the raw emotions, trials and tribulations that this family faces, forcing them to take a hard look at what family really is and find and way to make it through with love and laughter. This is a beautiful coming of age story that will get you laughing and crying as you journey along with the family. Tickets range from $18-$24 with a pay what you can on March 17th, 2011.
