A Comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten

   October 12 to 28, 2018

 

Comic fireworks explode in this hilarious new comedy from the authors of
Doublewide, Texas
and Farce of Nature. We’re back at the Reel ‘Em Inn,
the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks, and it’s not going to be a
peaceful
weekend on the lake. Caffeine withdrawal, marital trouble, a gaggle of nuns
and a pompous radio personality make that impossible. Oh, and did we
mention there’s an axe murderer on the loose?
