Harvey Ruttles has waited his entire life to inherit his fortune. Perhaps the only other person who is more excited about the inheritance is his wife, Peggy. The day finally arrives when Harvey’s father passes. Peggy throws a little celebration to kick off their life full of luxury…when Harvey chokes to death on an imported piece of ham. Without Harvey’s signature on the inheritance papers, Peggy has nothing. Her dreams are shattered unless she can convince everyone that Harvey is still alive. With the help of her sister Darlene, a hilarious tale ensues as they try to convince their small town – the minister, Harvey’s co-workers, neighbors and friends that Harvey is alive and well.
Join us onstage for this hilarious comedy a la “Weekend at Bernie’s” !

Bernard is attempting to rush his wife, Jacqueline, off to her mother’s for the weekend so he can enjoy a tryst with his model girlfriend, Suzanne. Jacqueline cancels her plans at the last minute when she learns that Bernard has also invited his best friend, Robert, who is her secret lover. The complications pile on when Bernard persuades a reluctant Robert to pretend to be Suzanne’s boyfriend, making Jacqueline furiously jealous. Because Robert has never met Suzanne (aka Suzy), he mistakenly introduces the catering chef, Suzette (also nicknamed Suzy) as his girlfriend. During the course of the evening, Suzette masquerades as Bernard’s lover and Robert’s niece, in addition to being the wife of the muscular and threatening George. Set in a converted barn in the French countryside, the play has all the usual conventions of farce, including a great deal of physical comedy.
