Cochin Community Players has two extended weekends worth of presentations due to sell out, as usual, as they present 37 Postcards at the Cochin Community Hall.
The play, by Michael McKeever, will be presented Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 19, 20, 21 and 22 and the following week, again beginning on Thursday, Nov. 26, 27, 28 and 29.
The cast of 37 Postcards, set in the sitting room of the house of Mr. and Mrs. Standford P. Sutton in Darien, Conn., is made up of Norma Klassen (Evelyn), Leanne Merkowsky (Ester), Tyrell Smith (Avery), Sara Lynn Houk (Gillian), Heather Anderson (Nana), Harvey Anderson (Stanford) and Tank Alexander (Skippy).
After eight years of travelling abroad, son Avery Sutton is happy to return to the comfort of his home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he remembered it. The house is tilted at a distinct angle, the dog hasn’t been fed in five years and Avery’s grandmother, who everyone thought was dead, is still alive and kicking. Forced to either accept the oddities of his family, or leave them behind, 37 Postcards suggested that you can, in fact, go home again. You just never know what you’re going to find.
Producer for the 37 Postcards is Carol Carlson and Linda Jackson and Harvey Anderson are the directors, although the three also fill other capacities on the production. The rest of the crew includes Mike Carlson, Bill Jarvis, Terry Seime, Sharon Neveu, Christine Elder and Sean Jacob with special mention to Judy Bishop, John Dyck, Heather Anderson and Marie Alexander.

The Cochin Community Players started in 1996 with a cast and crew of six and an audience of fewer than 200. Recent productions have involved several dozen people and audiences of more than 1,000. Today, with many productions behind it, the club is an important local cultural institution.
