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
