Way Off Broadway Community Players presents the fifth show of our Platinum 20thth season, the southern-fried Texas comedy Doublewide, Texas by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. The show is directed by Tracy Cathey, assisted by Bill Craig and Beth Watkin. Opening night is Friday, April 21, 2017, with performances April 21, 22, 28, 29, and May 5, 6, 12, and 13 at 8 pm, with our Sunday Matinee, April 30 at 3 pm.
COMEDY: The inhabitants of Texas’ smallest trailer park fight the town that wants to annex them. Joveeta Crumpler has had it: being passed over again for a work promotion, attempting to keep a feisty mother out of the local bar, trying to keep Baby from taking his participation in a womanless beauty pageant way too seriously, curbing the impulse to take in every stray cat, possum, and armadillo that wanders by, being frustrated by the clients at the Stairway To Heaven Retirement Village, and constantly battling with the curmudgeon from across the road. But these friends, enemies, and neighbors realize they’ll have to work together if they have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by “the big guys.” The rollicking mayhem of this flat-out funny comedy escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale. So come on over to Doublewide, where life is double the fun, double the joy, and more than double the laughter!
