LISBON — In preparation for the annual Maine Principals Association One Act Play Festival, Lisbon High School Drama Club will stage “The Boor,” by Russian playwright Anton Chekhov today and Saturday a school release about the production describes the plot as follows:

A widow, who mourns for her husband seven months after his death, is approached by one of his creditors, a man in dire financial circumstances who desperately requires the money that the widow’s husband owed him.

The exchange between the widow and the creditor quickly progresses from polite to an explosive battle of the sexes, and the creditor, who expresses his negative opinion of women in general, is transformed by the spirit with which the widow argues with him.

Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. today and Saturday at Lisbon High School, 2 Sugg Drive.

The troupe will stage “ The Boor” during a regional one-act drama festival at Leavitt Area High School in Turner. The Lisbon High School presentation is scheduled to take place between noon and 4 p.m. March 10.
