Clare Rose Playhouse Presents ‘Bedside Manners’

March 21, 2016

PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – MARCH 21, 2016 – The Clare Rose Playhouse, a community theater at SJC Long Island, will continue its 31st anniversary season with the comedy, Bedside Manners. The show will run from April 22 through May 8, 2016.

In Bedside Manners by Derek Benfield, Ferris reluctantly agrees to look after his sister’s seedy country inn, but does not anticipate the wild comings and goings of her affairs. Over the course of his house-sitting, Ferris becomes engulfed in lies and confusion as he tries to prevent the meetings of husbands, wives and lovers in compromising situations. 

Individual tickets for this show are priced at $15; $12 for students and seniors. Show times are 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; 3 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call the box office at 631.654.0199 or visit
