This delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy features four unique Southern women drawn together by by Fate — and an impromptu happy hour — who decide it’s high time they renew their zest for living, and perhaps even for love. Through laughter, libations, and misadventure, the women find strength in one another, a determination to live life in the present and, more importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
Trina Isakson is Randa, a perfectionist and workaholic, who is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment that, unfortunately, reveals that she has no life and no idea how to get one.
Tina Thompson as Dot, is still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, and faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch—all alone.
Nicole Narbonne as Marlafaye, earthy and boisterous, a good ol’ Texas gal, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist. The strength of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous revenge on her ex.
And Tricia Andrews as Jinx, also new to town, is a spunky ball of fire, who offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she over-looks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice.
Al Dicken, pianist, transitions us from one delightful scene to the next with snippets of original music.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
