Join is for an entertaining script-in-hand performance of this comic fable by Neil Simon, set in the small village of Kulyenchikov, Ukraine (Russian Territory) during the late 19th century. The story follows Leon Steponovich Tolchinsky, a schoolteacher who takes a new job educating Sophia, the daughter of Doctor Zubritsky and his wife, Lenya.

Leon soon learns that there is a 200-year curse on the village that causes chronic stupidity. He discovers that the town's idiocy is no accident. The curse has been cast on them by Vladimir Yousekevitch after his son killed himself because the first Sophia Zubritsky (not the doctor's daughter, but rather an ancestor with the same name) was forbidden to see Vladimir's son by her father, who found out the boy was illiterate and made Sophia marry another man. The curse will be broken if Leon is able to educate Sophia. Complications ensue when Leon falls in love with his pupil.

Cast: Casey Cline-Leon, Courtney Walker, Rebecca Romnaigh, Diana George, Charlie Birdsell, Mykel Chambers, Noelani Briggs, Paul Adkins, Pat Scott, Alan Lerdo, and Gary Spees. Directed by Linda Jensen.
