Hors d’oeuvres: 6:30 P.M. Curtain: 7:30 P.M.

This madcap comedy centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in repertory in Buffalo, New York. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clue-less fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body. It’s an evening of old-fashioned knockabout farce that will keep you laughing - beginning to end.
