Three best friends from childhood reunite on a fishing dock at Cypress Lake and reminisce about the good old days – skinny dipping, skipping school and reeling in the “big one”. But life has changed since the carefree days of youth. Frog, Gordon and Curley have all grown apart, and the most recent reason is that Betty – Curley’s sister and Frog’s ex-wife – is now dating Gordon. On the pier, their friendship is put to the final test as life serves up the biggest catch of all.

Rehearsals will begin after New Year’s and will initially be three evenings a week at 7:00, days to be determined after auditions.
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.
Characters: The script does not specify ages for the characters so there will be flexibility in casting. The director will be looking for the best fit in terms of the demands of the play and the chemistry between actors.
