11/14/2019 7:30:00 AM Wabeno Area Players to present 'Farce of Habit'
The Wabeno Area Players will present "Farce of Habit" this month with shows at 7 p.m. Nov, 21-23, and 1 p.m. Nov. 23 and 24, all at Madonna Hall in Wabeno.
This is the last production of the Players 2019 season, so don't miss a chance to enjoy a hilarious night or afternoon out, organizers said in a press release. Drink and beverage table service will be available.
Comic fireworks explode in "Farce Of Habit," a Southern-fried romp that goes back to a fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Proprietor D. Gene Wilburn is looking forward to a peaceful weekend, but there are only two chances of that happening: slim and none.
Why has his wife picked these three days to begin caffeine withdrawal? Why is his son's marriage falling apart so fast? How on earth would D. Gene's sister get caught up in such a bizarre undercover police assignment? If this isn't enough to thwart D. Gene's weekend plans, he's got a gaggle of nuns who've converged on the Inn for a nature retreat. Add to this a nationally known relationship guru whose colossal ego threatens everyone's sanity; a shy retiree anxious to cut loose and embrace his "inner caveman" and a couple of wild women who may or may not be who they claim to be. Throw in a storm of the century, and D. Gene has no prayer of baiting a hook any time soon. Oh, and there's an axe murderer on the loose.
