This is a reprise of a successful production of this play last year.

The cast includes Joan Malone, Kay Bryant, Rosalie Robertson, Elaine Luytens and Lyle Freeman. The director is John Bouchard.

This is a fund raiser for the Cast Adrift Players, a local group which normally specializes in fund raisers for other groups. The Cast Adrift Players, founded by Bouchard, brings plays to clubs, schools, restaurants and other organizations.

The show on Tuesday will be preceded by a champagne reception at 7 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10, and reservations can be made by calling 624-6230.
