Three Viewings
A dark comedy by Jeffrey Hatcher.
FREE Admission ($10 suggested donation)
Foothills Arts Council Gallery
Directed by Mike Cheek
Starring: Judy Deck, Kitsey Harrison, Morgan Harrison

A small town funeral parlor is the setting for these three darkly funny and touching short plays. In Tell Tale, we enter the private thoughts of a respectable married mortician, lost in passion for a beautiful real estate broker who markets to the bereaved. In Thief of Tears, we meet Mac, the attractive daughter of an upper-class WASP family who frequents the Viper Room and steals jewelry from corpses. And in Thirteen Things about Ed Carpolotti, a newly widowed suburban matron finds her world crashing about her – only to be rescued by love from beyond the grave.

Maybe, Baby It's You
Feb

to Feb 25

Maybe, Baby It's You

  • First Baptist Church of Elkin (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Friday & Saturday performances at 7 pm. Sunday performance at 2 pm.

Maybe Baby, It's You is a comedy about the search for that most elusive of entities, the soul mate, and told in a series of 11 vignettes that cover ground from the first kiss to the not-so-golden years of marriage. We take a raucous ride through male-female relationships with two searchers with a laundry list of must-have qualities for a mate that swiftly dwindles down to "warm and breathing" as the only prerequisite; a mild-mannered Midwesterner whose blind date turns out to be the Greek goddess Medea; a film noir couple who realize that their razor-sharp banter is hiding their fear and vulnerability; a gorgeous, charming brain surgeon who is always "Mr. Wrong" due to his penchant for spastic, arrhythmic club dancing; a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary who realize that marriage may not have ended their search for a soul mate; an elderly divorced couple who entertain the fantasy of a reconciliation at their grandson's soccer game; and other would-be and shouldn't-be couples trying to find each other. Maybe Baby, It's You. Or maybe…it isn't.
