IT’S IMPROV NIGHT AGAIN!
JOIN US FOR AN EVENING OF LAUGHTER!
THE SAVANNAH SIPPING SOCIETY
BY JONES, HOPE, WOOTEN
OPENS SEPTEMBER 29
Audrey Kirsten directs another hilarious Jones Hope Wooten comedy! In this delightful play, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Randa, (played by Jincy Bufford) a perfectionist and workaholic, is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment that, unfortunately, reveals that she has no life and no idea how to get one. Dot, (played by Jan Simpson), still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch—and all alone. Earthy and boisterous Marlafaye, (played by Lynn Sandlin), a good ol’ Texas gal, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist. The strength of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous revenge on her ex. Also new to town, Jinx, (played by Kim Martin), a spunky ball of fire, offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she over-looks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jump-start their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends. So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching show.
The performances will be September 29 and 30 and October 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15. The two Sunday performances will be at 2PM and the others at 7:30. Please click on the “buy tickets” button and get your tickets in advance. Questions or problems, email us at email@example.com
