Directed by Acacia Duncan
In this wicked dark comedy of friendship, obsession, and Southern sensibilities, Mr. Witherose leaves Birdie, Gretch, and Minnie to tend to his bar while he is away on business in Atlanta. Birdie and Gretch are battling for Mr. Witherose’s affection in his absence, but neither knows that Minnie is guarding his terrible secret. When an innocent tryst goes awry, the ghosts of sordid secrets come out into the open, providing a wild mix of fearless comedy and Southern Gothic horror.
“A grand, grotesque little play” (Philadelphia Inquirer) and “an immensely entertaining and thought provoking play (Stage Magazine). Nominated for a Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play.
