Helen's Most Favorite Day
by Boerne Community Theatre
Mar. 29 - Mar. 30
Be careful what you wish for… Love at “second sight” and a magic wish doom Helen to repeat the best day of her life ad infinitum, unless she can be rescued by those nearest and dearest to her in this romantic fantasy about love in three tenses, and dreams fulfilled and unfulfilled. Helen’s Most Favorite Day tells the story of forty-four-year-old Helen, for whom romantic love has been an infrequent caller. At a trip to the fairgrounds, Helen is swept off her feet by a carnie named Jed, who gives her one of the nicest, most special days of her life. He gives Helen another gift as well: a “wish” proffered to him by his friend, a mystic. Helen, playing along, “wishes” for the chance to repeat this special day forever. Her wish is granted. And with it comes the direst of unforeseen repercussions. Her family and friends rally to assist Helen by wishing themselves back to that same day, to extricate her and to, in fact, save the universe. A gentle comedy wrapped in a beat-the-clock rollick, as science and logic take a back seat to the directives of the human heart.
