Darcy J. Knopp and New Westminster actor Tyler Q. Felbel are onstage in Langley Little Theatre's production of Problem Child, April 20 to May 6.

A New Westminster actor is onstage with Langley Little Theatre in its spring production.

Problem Child, which runs April 20 to May 6, features the talents of New West's Tyler Q. Felbel, alongside Langley actors Kristine Brams and Darcy J. Knopp, plus Judith Beltzer of Maple Ridge. It's directed by Helen Embury.

Problem Child is the first play in George F. Walker's Suburban Motel series.

Set in a broken-down motel, the play traces the equally broken-down lives of its characters, a press release notes. In the play, R.J., recently out of prison, and Denise, who has turned a few tricks to pay the rent, are hunkered down in a motel room awaiting a visit from the social worker, Helen. Denise will stop at nothing to get her baby back — and Helen is the one person standing between her and little Christine. While R.J. gets lost in daytime television, Denise enlists the help of Phillie, the drunken motel manager, to bring about a happy reunion.

The play is Langley Little Theatre's entry into the Fraser Valley Zone Festival.

You can catch it onstage at the Langley Little Theatre, 4307 200 St. in Brookswood. Shows are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $25 for all performances; buy online. You can find more info at the Langley Little Theatre website.
