Nate Eppler-helmed HERE LIES JEREMY TROY Takes The Chaffin's Barn Stage 4/26-5/24

April 26
10:18 AM 2012


What’s the difference between a lawyer and a liar? That’s the questioned posited by the farcical Here Lies Jeremy Troy, opening Thursday, April 26, at Nashville’s Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre, running through May 24.

In the stage comedy written by Jack Sharkey, Jeremy Troy is a lawyer about to be made a partner in his law firm. He has everything—a beautiful wife, money, and a lovely home. The only thing he's missing is a law degree! If the truth comes out, Jeremy's whole life could be turned upside down!

Directed by Nate Eppler, Here Lies Jeremy Troy stars Rebekah Durham, Andy Kanies, Jennifer Richmond, Will Sevier and Lane Wright.

Eppler, in addition to acting and directing, is a playwright and teaching artist based in Nashville. His plays include Keeping Up With the Joneses, The Shorty Hawkins Play, Modern Love and Long Way Down. Eppler is the recipient of both the Tennessee Arts Commission Professional Development Support Grant and the Individual Artist Fellowship. He is playwright-in-residence for Tennessee Repertory Theatre.

His play, Long Way Down (which was produced by Johnny Peppers’ 3PS Productions in 2011, with a cast that included Durham and Richmond) was named First Night’s Outstanding Original Work of 2011. His script for Rear Widow (co-written with J. Dietz Osborne and premiered at Chaffin’s Barn) won the award for 2010.

“Theatre in the Afternoon” performances are planned for Thursday, April 26, May 3, 10, 17 and 24 and on Saturday April 28. House opens at 11 a.m., show at 12 noon. Tickets are $19, bring your own lunch, beverages provided or order Chaffin’s Boxed Lunch when you make your reservation for an additional $8.50

Evening performances are scheduled for every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the buffet from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and curtain at 8 p.m.

Every Sunday performance starts with the buffet served from noon to 1:30 p.m., with the show at 2 p.m.

Ticket prices for all evening shows and Sunday matinees (which include dinner and show) are $60 per adult, $58 for seniors (65 and up), $45 for students 13-18; and $35 for children 12 and under. Show-only tickets are $40 for adults, $30 for children 12 and under, $35 for students 13-18.
