“A Bad Year for Tomatoes” – In this farce, fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbors is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some privacy, Myra invents a mad, homicidal sister-who is kept locked in an upstairs room, but who occasionally escapes long enough to scare off uninvited visitors. The ruse works well, at first, but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for “Sister Sadie” (really Myra in a fright wig) and some of the more officious ladies decide it is their duty to save the poor demented Sadie’s soul. In desperation Myra announces that her imaginary sibling has suddenly gone off to Boston-which brings on the sheriff and the suspicion of murder! The funny doings will keep audiences laughing right up to the final curtain. Frisco Community Theatre in Frisco Discovery Center Black Box Theater- Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays at 2:30pm through March 10th.
