THE PUZZLE WITH THE PIAZZA is presented by special arrangement with Mark Dunn.


The Puzzle with the Piazza, a new full-length comedy-drama by Mark Dunn, author of BellesFive Tellers Dancing in the Rain, and The Glitter Girls, tells the story of septuagenarian Althea Witlin, who has one jigsaw puzzle among her large collection that she’s never worked. It contains 3,000 pieces and she has less than a day to finish it, because poor health has forced her to move in with her younger sister … without her puzzles. The Puzzle with the Piazza is a gentle, bittersweet comedy/drama about the fragility of family ties and the often much stronger bonds of friendship that lattice the final years of our lives.

Anyone entering the Marion Art Center must wear a mask.

NOTE: Online ticket sales will close a few hours prior to showtime. Online ticket sales for Saturday and Sunday shows will close at 2:00pm on Saturday, when office hours end for the weekend. We are closed on Sundays and Mondays. You may still purchase tickets at the door (cash preferred) unless you read “sold out” on the website. We will do our best to update this page in case a show is sold out.
