SPECIAL TO THE TELEGRAPH

Tyler Perry’s newest stage play, “Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned,” is coming to Macon.

The only performance will happen 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Macon Coliseum. The play focuses on a modern romance and the perils that can come with it.

While Perry, who is best known for his Madea character, will not be making an appearance, some of the actors will be known to the audience.

Cheryl Riley, who has appeared in other Perry Productions, plays Anita, the woman who looks for love online and believes she has found it. Her grandmother, played by Patrice Lovely, who appears weekly in the OWN network show “Love Thy Neighbor,” is skeptical of the potential suitor.

Anita ultimately discovers her friends and family may have been right about her beau.

The play is hilarious and thought-provoking, said Marilyn Jennings, who is the show’s marketing director.

She said audience members can expect laughs that will having them falling out of their seats, but they will also walk away with some life lessons.

Other actors are Monica Blaire, Ray Lavendar, Zebulon Ellis, Muhammed Ayers, Candice Pye and Olrick Johnson.
