Diversionary stages ‘Fair Use’ West Coast Premiere

Jacque Wilke and Amanda Sitton in Fair Use.

Diversionary Theatre continues 25th Anniversary Year with the West Coast premiere of Fair Use by Sarah Gubbins. The show opens Feb. 26 and runs through March 13.

Sexual politics collide with legal brinksmanship in this whip-smart romantic comedy. While attorneys at a Chicago law firm take on a high-profile plagiarism case, their after-hours romantic triangle echoes Cyrano de Bergerac. Sy is in love with her co-counsel Madi, who in turn is involved with Chris.

“The play savors the pleasures of language, sensuality and rich debate over such elusive concepts as intellectual property,” wrote Creative Loafing in Atlanta, listing the show’s East Coast premiere as the Top 10 Plays of 2009.

While in the midst of a high-profile legal case, with echos of Cyrano de Bergerac, the love triangle gets complicated by a series of seductive, eloquent love letters.

Fair Use previews Thursday and Friday, Feb. 24 and 25, opens on Saturday, Feb. 26 and runs through Sunday, March 13. Single tickets are $31-$33 with discounts available for students, seniors (60+), military and groups (10 or more).

For tickets and show times, call the box office at 619-220-0097 or log on to diversionary.org.
