Comedy By Beth Henley
Directed by Anne Pourciau

A long-run Off-Broadway success, this explosively funny play again demonstrates the author’s unique gift for finding rich lodes of humor—and simple wisdom—in the zany activities of small-town life. “…the evening’s torrential downpour of humor—alternately Southern-Gothic absurdist, melancholy and broad—almost never subsides.” —NY Times. “It’s a comic volcano of a play, populated by offbeat, but vital, larger-than-life characters…” —The Hollywood Reporter. “These are obviously the kinds of roles actors can happily chomp on…” —Time.
