Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and the sound effects take on a strange note at times, as the ladies present their ambitious evening's entertainment with the cunning whodunit, "Murder At Checkmate Manor." Don’t miss this healthy dose of outrageous dramatics, topped off with a final inventive twist.
Nola goes back to her parents’ home after a disagreement with her boyfriend, Quincy, to find some peace and quiet to sort through her problems. But what she finds instead is a circus of confusion. Her mother, Audrey, is dealing with repairs and redecoration of the house; her father, Lawrence, refuses to help and escapes to work; and an energetic neighbor, Helen, helps watch over Aunt Maggie, Lawrence’s somewhat vague sister who recently moved in after possibly poisoning her own cat – and her late husband. Between the hidden money that turns up missing and Quincy’s arrival and bout with food (?) poisoning, these lovable characters try to overcome the differences between the sexes and the generations to keep their relationships intact and Aunt Maggie out of trouble!
It is 6 p.m. and the Douglas family is busily preparing for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a hide-out. A comic treasure that is sure to leave you in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
