What do you do when you have three geriatric sisters as patients and all they want to do is sit at home and talk to one another—all at the same time? You move another person in with them. At least, that’s what Doc Lomax does when he has a new nurse needing a place to live—a nurse with a secret, that is. The hard part is convincing the sisters they need a roomer. In no time, however, Nurse Jean has them planning parties, pulling Halloween pranks and wearing jogging suits while they race each other to the corner. But when the nephew shows up with a plan to sell the family house, things seem to get complicated again, especially with Christmas just around the corner. This heartwarming piece is loaded with wisecracks and one-liners that keep the laughter flowing.
DEATH BY DESIGN
APRIL 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29
Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a funny tribute to the classic, witty English murder mystery. A playwright, his wife and numerous unexpected guests arrive at a country house. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
FIRST BAPTIST OF IVY GAP
JUNE 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24
A wonderful play about six strong and resourceful mountain women. Very funny, mostly because it relies on deep human emotions to bring forth the humor. Six of the most wonderful characters you’ll ever see – tasty comfort for the playgoer’s soul.
THE SECOND TIME AROUND
SEPTEMBER 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23
Senior Citizens Samuel and Laura, a widower and a widow, strike up a love affair. When they announce plans to live together without marrying so they can keep all their social security benefits, their children hit the ceiling. Samuel and Laura’s uptight kids, and THEIR kids and spouses are an assortment of rather neurotic characters. The story is one that many of our audience will see as a familiar and hilarious. All ends well for the elderly twosome, but not before the entire second generation is in nervous fits.
A CHRISTMAS STORY
NOVEMBER 23, 24, 25, 30 AND DECEMBER 1, 2, 7, 8, 9
