Southwest Theatre Productions presents Dear Penelope, a comedy by Kat Sparks, directed by Aaron Johnson. |
ALEX REED, VERIS HUMPHRIES, JOLLY KINCAID and TONI BARON work together at an advice column located in the basement of Bluestone Communications, the largest mega-media news corporation in the United States. Each of them was sent here as a demotion because of something they did or didn't do. They're miserable, desperate, and looking for a way to get back "upstairs" no matter what it takes. Their former boss, DARBY STILLS, reappears after being sent to the London bureau for unknown reasons. His return sparks fear that the division is going to be shut down. So they concoct a scheme to get in front of the camera and deliver a top secret story unfolding at the White House. But they're a little rusty.
With the help of WENDELL FISSER, their misunderstood and macabre mailroom clerk, they put everything they've got into getting the story and getting Bluestone's attention one last time. Oh, they get attention, all right...
Wine concessions will be available at each performance beginning one hour prior to the show and during intermission. Parking is free at the Dougherty Arts Center. Like us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/southwesttheatreproductions
