Following the opening night of the Timberly Troupers’ musical about undertakers, Dorothy and her slightly daft husband, Charlie, host a gathering of actors and friends.  The chic opening night party is in another part of town, but into the living room of Dorothy comes a guest list that includes members of the troupe, the local critic and a couple of outsiders.  When the critic has a heart attack he drops his not yet published review before being taken to the hospital.  The actors read it and confront the harsh reality of a pan.  Dorothy’s sweetness and patience rise above Ernie’s bitter tirade and the others trade barbs and insults as they try to control their emotions.  The party becomes the setting where the dreams, loves, failures and successes of this group are explored with bittersweet humor and the relationship between risk and need is touchingly depicted.


Performance Dates Sept 13 - 29, 2013 with performances Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. There is a Sat Matinee on the 2nd Saturday of the run.
