The Heartbreak Henry – Theatre Oxford

August 14 @ 2:00 PM

Take a 19-year-old Ole Miss student and sign him up as night manager of the aging Henry Hotel in Oxford and you have the comedy The Heartbreak Henry, which will be presented at the Gertrude C. Ford Theatre August 12-15. The Heartbreak Henry, written and director by David Sheffield, the former head copy-writer for Saturday Night Live, features many of the cranky, contentious and confused patrons who frequented the run-down hotel during his tenure. The production is presented by Theatre Oxford with co-sponsorship through the University of Mississippi School of Journalism & New Media.

According to Sheffield, “I went to Ole Miss for an education, but the real education took place at the Henry Hotel. I saw things at the Henry I never saw at home.”
