West Virginia Wesleyan College's Department of Theatre and Dance will present David Lindsay-Abaire's comedy "Wonder of the World." The play will run from Jan. 31 to Feb.2 and then again from Feb. 8-9 at 8 p.m., with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. in the English Annex at the college.

Discovering a dirty secret in her husband's sweater drawer, Cass flees to the honeymoon capitol of the world in a frantic search of the life she feels she missed out on. Her journey of self-discovery leads her to cross paths with a suicidal alcoholic, a pair of bickering private detectives, and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter.

The play is for mature audiences. Tickets are $8 general admission, $5 seniors and students, and $3 for the West Virginia Wesleyan community with an ID.

For information, contact Greg Mach at mach@wvwc.edu. Seating is limited.
