Written by the same playwrights who wrote “The Mystery of Miz Arnette”–Four garden-club ladies meet a young girl who has come to their little Texas town to marry an infantryman before he ships off for World War II. The women impulsively decide to throw the girl an elaborate wedding, and their lives and friendships are thrown into turmoil as they race to accomplish the nuptials in one frenzied afternoon. “Delightful!…Funny and folksy…The ladies light up the stage!” – The Dallas Morning News

From the same playwrights who brought us “Mama Won’t Fly” and “The Hallelujah Girls,” in this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas—four doublewides and a shed—are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them. And it’s not as if they don’t already have enough to deal with–all the residents are plagued by Haywood Sloggett, the curmudgeon from across the road, who loathes their “trailer-trash” ways, especially their keeping a life-size illuminated nativity scene up year ’round. But these friends, enemies, and neighbors realize they’ll have to work together to defeat the encroaching annexation if they—and their way of life—have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by “the big guys.” The rollicking mayhem of this flat-out funny Jones Hope Wooten 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 grab your Stetson and come on over to Doublewide, Texas, where life is double the fun, double the joy, and where audiences double over with laughter!
Last Train to Nibroc

July 28, 29, & 30 and August 6 & 7 —2016
Last Train to Nibroc is a quintessential love story in its purest form. Set in the 1940s, it tells the story of Raleigh and May – two strangers who meet on a cross country train during WWII. This funny and touching tale of an unlikely romance follows the two as they search for their own happiness. This play is the prequel to “See Rock City” presented by the Red Door in August 2013. A funny, touching portrait of two people searching for happiness, this simply staged romance played to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Off-Broadway. NIBROC’s jokes are funny and its couple endearing because their emotional struggles ring true.” —Time Out NY. “You could easily enjoy another few hours of this.” —NY Times. “…a blissfully sweet romantic play quite unlike the typical fare offered in theatres these days.” —NY Theatre.com. “It is beautifully written…Every line is a heartbeat.” —Financial Times.
