Auditions for Cheatin’
by Del Shores
Directed by Susan Rossman
Full Length Play, Comedy
Before Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will? there was this award winning comedy set in the west Texas watering hole of Lowake. Gossip, the town’s major pastime, ignites a blaze of infidelity that engulfs three couples with the zany precision of a Feydeau farce. The clan includes Bo Bob, the dimwitted mailman, and Clarence, local stud and mechanic who’s been messin’ with Ovella since high school. His faithful girl is Sara Lee Turnover, the beautician. Teddy Joe, Ovella’s wronged husband who is more brawn than brain, Maybelline, the overweight waitress who wants to be in love, and a narrator/story teller/singer who doubles as a psychic and believes in happy endings complete the cast. The comedy is fast paced and touching with a sense of authentic Texas humor.”Hilarious.” – L.A. Daily News”A hotcake of a Texas comedy.” – Drama Logue”An entertaining, truly hilarious eruption of bucolic wit.” – Kansas City Star
