Don't Dress for Dinner in Broadway DON'T DRESS FOR DINNER
Weathervane Playhouse
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along, too, to provide the alibi. It's foolproof! What could possibly go wrong? Well…suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited? Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determine that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend? Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook? Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's? In this hilarious farce, an evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert find that they must improvise at a break-neck speed!

The Miss Firecracker Contest in Broadway THE MISS FIRECRACKER CONTEST
Curtain Players Theatre
The story is set in the small Mississippi town of Brookhaven, the time a few days before the Fourth of July. Carnelle Scott is rehearsing furiously for the Miss Firecracker Contest - hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation and allow her to leave town in a blaze of glory. The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker winner, complicates matters a bit, as does the repeated threat of Elain's eccentric brother, Delmount to sell the family homestead and decamp for New Orleans. But, aided by a touchingly awkward seamstress named Popeye and several other cheerfully nutty characters, Carnelle perseveres - leading to a denouement of unparalleled hilarity, compassion and moving lyricism as all concerned finally escape their unhappy pasts and turn hopefully toward what must surely be a better future.

Cock in Broadway COCK
Available Light Theatre
A story of one man, his boyfriend, his new girlfriend, and a surprise dinner guest, Mike Bartlett's "cockfight play" is an unflinching look at the consequences of our intimate relationships and the extent to which we are defined by our sexual identities. The hottest thing to come out of Britain in years, the play with the unprintable title is a passionate, erotic tug-of-war. The tiny cast revels in the power of suggestion and insinuation, fully giving their blood, sweat, and tears over to the carnage.
