This deliriously funny Southern-fried farce finds the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas—Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette—teetering on the brink of disaster again. Gaynelle, frustrated and frazzled from working too many two-bit jobs, stubbornly refuses to face the fact she’s turning the Big 4-0. In a misguided effort to lift her cousin’s spirits, Peaches, a sassy, morturarial cosmetologist who’s stuck in a romantic dry gulch, is determined to throw Gaynelle a surprise birthday party she doesn’t even want. Jimmie Wy, riding high on the success of her new wedding gown boutique for big gals—Wide Bride—reluctantly agrees to help Peaches surprise Gaynelle. But it turns out the surprise is on them when, in a startling twist, the party plans shift to a hastily thrown-together family funeral instead.
The cast features Tony McCuiston, Anita Hale, Brittany McCuiston Grant, Debby McCuiston, Dan Frank . John McCallister, Anessa Van Horn, Mary Pendergrass, Leia Barker and Mandy Clark. The play is directed by Tony McCuiston and sponsored by First Bank of Tennessee. http://ow.ly/i/8H3v4 http://ow.ly/i/8H3Hh

Tennessee Valley Theatre in Spring City will present A. R. Gurney’s Love Letters on Friday and Saturday. February 13 & 14, at 7:30 PM. Cost is $10. For reservations, go to http://www.tennesseevalleytheatre.com or call 423-365-PLAY.
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools.” While Andy is off at war Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should, and becomes estranged from her children.
Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. However Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.
The play recently had a Broadway run featuring a rotating cast including Mia Farrow, Brian Dennehy, Carol Burnett, Alan Alda and Candice Bergen.
The two person play features Kathy Soja and Harry Landreth, directed by Mr. Landreth and sponsored by RevTel.net. http://ow.ly/i/8AY9j
