IPAL’s ‘The Death and Life of Larry Benson’ to open Friday, Dec. 4

The Iberia Performing Arts League’s next performance of the season will be “The Death and Life of Larry Benson,” a play directed by Donna Berard.
Show dates are Dec. 4 - 6 and Dec. 8 - 11. Thursday through Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.
“The Death and Life of Larry Benson” is a gripping and emotional story about the family of Larry Benson as they deal with the fact that their son is missing in action, until one day they find that he is returning home.
The entire town is excited and plans for a very big welcome, but when he arrives, the young soldier finds that he is a stranger. The buildup of tension and drama brings about the moment of truth and vindication.
Performances will be at the Essanee Theatre in downtown New Iberia, 126 Iberia St.
All tickets are $10 and available online at
