    Realities of war affect women close to the scene as well as after the fact in Necessary Targets, which Shelby County Community Theatre will present starting Friday.

    Necessary Targets will go on Oct. 17, 18, 24, and 25 at 7:30 p.m. each night. A matinee will happen on Oct. 19 at 2:30 p.m. All performances are to happen on the second floor at Shelby County Community Theatre, located at 801 Main Street in Shelbyville, KY.

    Tickets for each show are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors 62 and over, and $10 for students. All tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling the reservation line at 502-633-0242.

    Necessary Targets focuses on two women, a psychiatrist and a human rights worker, who leave America and head to Bosnia to help women still reeling from the Bosnian war. As the American women help the Bosnian women confront their memories and emotions, the American women find themselves being changed by the experience and finding common ground with the Bosnians.

    Eve Ensler created Necessary Targets, which Jack Wann directed for the Upstairs at 801 series at Shelby County Community Theatre.

    Following Necessary Targets, Shelby County Community Theatre will present An Evening of American Folkways, which will also be part of the Upstairs at 801 series. That show will go on Nov. 8.
