Cindy Modlin Adams plays Mrs. Garling in Still Kicking, the first MainStage production in the 2013-2014 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The play is by Civic Theatre volunteer Laurie Russell.
Question: Why did you audition for Still Kicking?
Cindy Modlin Adams: I was in the staged reading of Puzzles, which was the first version of Still Kicking. I have a completely different role now.
Q: Who is Mrs. Garling? What is she like?
C.M.A.: Mrs. Garling is Lily's mother. She is used to getting her way, she is troubled and doesn't know what to do with her daughter.
Q: What is the best advice you received from an older person?
C.M.A.: One of my patients told me, "Love isn't something you can teach, but how to make love is something that can be learned."
