To open the new year, the Players Club of Swarthmore is presenting "Company," a witty musical look at marriage and relationships.

"Company" follows perennial bachelor Bobby (Eric Carter-Thompson, of Garnet Valley) on his 35th birthday, as his five married couple friends gather to celebrate. Their interactions are presented in a series of vignettes. In each vignette, Bobby gets and shares an intimate look at their various relationships while they look back at him and his carefree independence with a good bit of envy.

"Company" features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, including “Company,” “Being Alive,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Marry Me a Little” and “Side by Side by Side.” Company is directed and choreographed by Eddie Donlevie. Music direction is by Pat D’Amato.

"Company" will run through Saturday, Jan. 19. Performances will be Jan. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 8 p.m.; Jan. 6 and 13 at 2 p.m.; and Jan. 10 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. 

Audiences can meet the artists in a talk back discussion following the Jan. 13 performance. 

The Players Club of Swarthmore is located at 614 Fairview Road, Swarthmore.
