The North Carolina premiere of the comedy, “Sirens,” is the Highlands Cashiers Players first play of the new season. It continues Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 25-28, at the Performing Arts Center in Highlands.
The story concerns a middle-aged couple, Sam and Rose Abrams, who take a cruise to the Greek Islands, hoping to bring a little romance back into their 25-year marriage. On this voyage, Sam and only Sam hears an irresistible melody wafting over the water and follows it to a strange destination where he encounters a siren. Sam’s adventure and its unexpected consequences when he returns home are totally entertaining.
