Play Details: Family Patriarch, Dewey Frye has passed unexpectedly and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces — that is if they don’t kill each other first. Matriarch Dorothy has to contend with sudden widowhood as well as church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey’s snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry.
“A warm, funny and wonderfully witty play that is redolent of magnolia blossoms and a pot likker seasoned with family rivalries and long-held regrets and recriminations. In short, just like walking into your mama’s house again! The show is heartfelt – yet uproariously funny in a way that only Southerners can be- authentic and genuine, farfetched and unbelievable, just like we Southerners like all our stories.”
