Lake City play is comedy of errors

LAKE CITY– Village Square Theatre of Lake City is working on their fall play to be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at South Central Calhoun’s auditorium.

In this convulsively funny comedy for high schools and community theater, everything goes from bad to awful.

John is anxious about turning 50 and having done nothing with his life. His loving wife, Marianne, decides to show him he’s wrong by hosting a surprise funeral instead of a birthday party. Sounds strange, but her intentions are good — she wants him to know how much he’s loved. It’s to be a fantastic surprise party for guests, relatives, the undertaker, and most of all, John. But there’s a mix-up. John catches wind of Marianne’s plans for the funeral and assumes she’s planning to murder him. He purchases a plane ticket to Mexico to escape. When Marianne finds the plane ticket, she thinks John is leaving her! Their teenage daughter and the neighbors all have other even wackier ideas. This delightful mess is amazingly resolved in a hurricane of hilarity.

Seating is reserved with tickets available at the Lake City Hardware. All tickets are $12 which include the show and a dessert bar at intermission. Stop at the store at 109 East Main Street Lake City or by calling 712-464-7607.
