October 4-6 & 10-13, 2019
A community theatre somewhere nearby is putting on a play. They have the good fortune to have the playwright, right there, helping them. Sound like heaven? Disaster!
The playwright insists on changes during rehearsals—including the final dress rehearsal! No one knows what to do or how to do it. Panic runs rampant throughout the cast. Opening night everything that can go wrong does. When the playwright has the nerve to join curtain call, lightning strikes! But, after all, the play must go on—or must it?
