Uproar­i­ous com­edy Farce of Na­ture pre­sented by QNEK

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

QNEK Pro­duc­tions, award win­ning in­ter­na­tional theatre com­pany in res­i­dence at the his­toric Haskell Opera House, is round­ing out it's sea­son with the uproar­i­ous com­edy Farce of Na­ture by Jessie Jones, Ni­cholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. This show comes from the same trio that brought you Dearly Beloved, South­ern Hos­pi­tal­ity, and Christ­mas Belles, so you can be sure it will be a foot stampin', belly laughin', knee slap­pin' good time!

The non-stop hi­lar­ity of this South­ern-fried farce high­lights a day in the life of the Wil­burn fam­ily of May­hew, Arkansas. D. Gene Wil­burn is tak­ing des­per­ate mea­sures to save his fish­ing lodge the Reel 'Em Inn, while his wife Wanelle is tak­ing equally des­per­ate mea­sures to save their mar­riage. Add in a wacky sis­ter, a mob­ster in pro­tec­tive cus­tody, the guy he rat­ted out, a lovelorn cou­ple, and a pack of wild an­i­mals and you be­gin to see the wild and won­der­ful world of the Wil­burns come to life!

This lively farce stars Judy Cas­tonguay, Lisa Fos­ter, Stephen Gonyaw, Phil Gos­selin, Su­san Gran­fors, Deb­o­rah Mackay, Brian McCrae, An­drea Web­ster, and John Young. Jenny Dunne Directs with Elis­a­beth Barnes-Flint as the Stage Man­ager, along with Scenic De­signer Bradleigh Stock­well, Set En­gi­neer Rick Gos­selin, and Light and Sound Board Op­er­a­tor Ben­jamin Bar­rup.

You don't want to miss this ridicu­lous south­ern romp and QNEK's fi­nal Main­stage show of the 24th Sea­son! Farce of Na­ture plays at the Haskell Opera House till Septem­ber 18, Fri­days and Satur­days at 7:30, Sun­days at 2. Tick­ets are avail­able by call­ing the QNEK Box Of­fice at 802-334-2216.
