‘Dastardly Doings’ in Grass Valley

What is the melodrama, “The Dastardly Doings of Professor Whim,” about?

Dreams, says its creator, Pete Flahive. More specifically, the dreams of a villain about money, power, control and of dastardly doings. This play is also about love. The love of a good man for a good woman and the miserly mind that hopes to thwart that dream. This play is also about loyalty, and devotion. Whom can one trust? What is the price of trusting the wrong person?

A comedic actor and director and a former Mighty Carson Art Player on the “Tonight Show,” Flahive has written four other plays, including the Elly winning “I’ll Be Seeing You.” A past president of Community Players of Nevada County, he played the part of Fagan in “Oliver!”

The play has six more performances at the Off Center Stage, 315 Richardson St., Grass Valley: Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., May 29-31 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on the last day at 2 p.m. To charge tickets call (530) 271-7000; for more information call (530) 477-0266.
