Farce of Nature

Mainstage Play: Feb 20 - Mar 8, 2020

Farce of Nature


This Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. The struggling family fishing lodge, the Reel ‘Em Inn, becomes the backdrop for a motley collection of flawed characters stirring up a hilarious comedic stew. In the deliciously funny romp that ensues, they all hide, lie, disguise themselves, cross-dress, and slam doors, while trying to figure out the source of an increasingly awful stench. By then it’s too late and the lodge is surrounded by vicious critters and hungry varmints that have followed the odor down from the hills. In the delightfully chaotic climax of this one outrageous day, love blossoms, truths are revealed, and the lives of all—family, guests and gangsters alike—change in incredible and surprising ways.
