ROSWELL, Ga. – "Cat on a Hot Tin Streetcar" by the talented local writer and director Nita Hardy was the hilarious play presented at the Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET)'s "One Mysterious Evening" gala fundraiser, held on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Kimberly-Clark campus on Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell.

Two hundred people honored Paul and Bowe Lang as the 10th annual recipients of the GET Legacy Award. This award recognizes individuals, as well as corporations and foundations, which have made longstanding contributions of their time, talent and support to GET. The presentation was made by founding Trustees Robert J. Farley, artistic director, and Anita Allen Farley, managing director.

Paul Lang received the notification telephone call while he and his wife were in Europe.

"Bowe and I were incredibly humbled by that," he said. "You don't do things to get awards; you do things because you love them. And I love the theater."

The spoof on several of Tennessee Williams' plays was based around Fat Daddy's birthday party. Among the highlights were Manly Cole-Slawski, played by actor Jelani Williams, yelling the famous name "Stella," and Karen Howell playing Blanche Boudoir paraphrasing Blanche Dubois' famous line, "I've always depended on the kindness of strangers."

Members of the audience were encouraged to participate with several lines of humorous dialogue that brought both laughs and groans.

Before dinner and the four-act play, patrons were encouraged to bid on a large display of silent auction offerings that included jewelry, sports equipment and memorabilia and handmade ceramics. Bob Hagan, president of GET, also conducted a live auction. Proceeds allow GET to continue providing entertainment.

Janet Kincaid, the event chair, thanked all the sponsors, especially Kimberly-Clark, which provided the venue for the evening's fundraiser.
