Released August, 2010, Regal’s Last Resort promises to keep you laughing all the way through.  This fun new comedy from Sapperstein & Murway, Buck’s County’s latest creative team, requires minimal sets and a cast of only 8 with 2 additional members hiding in the audience.

SYNOPSIS:

It’s 1996 and the town of Regal, South Carolina is going bankrupt.  The town grew up surrounding the Regal Typewriter Company and with the advent of the computer, nobody wants typewriters anymore.

The town founder, owner of the Regal Typewriter Company, Colonel Beaumont, dies of old age and having no heirs, leaves his entire estate to the town of Regal.

Through much discussion, it is decided that, with all the experienced talent on the Board, the best thing to do is to turn the Factory into a Shopping Bazaar and the Colonel’s large home estate into a posh Hotel Resort and Spa.

On the Board is an Attorney, an Accountant, a Building Contractor, an Interior Designer, a High School Gym Teacher, a Real Estate Broker and Daisy Biskett.  Daisy is the owner of the local restaurant and has written and published a cook book.

Then there is Masood Habibi.  He is the owner of Habibi Fine Rugs, which always seems to be running a 20% off sale.  Masood, being the clever businessman that he is, has his own agenda.

The greed sets in and everyone see’s an opportunity to get rich quick.  Finally depleting the town coffers of all working capital, they must make an accounting at a Town Hall meeting, but they have backed themselves into a corner.

Miraculously there is an anonymous buyer that wants to purchase the Hotel Resort at a very good price and quickly.  However, the Townspeople become suspicious after the council sell’s the Hotel and restores the town’s bank account with the proceeds.

The Townspeople rebel until finally, Daisy Biskett can’t take it anymore.  She hysterically announces that SHE is the buyer.  She has made so much money from the sale of her cook book, that she is more than able to make the purchase.

There is greed, fist fights, a secret sexual tryst, unrequited love, several 20% off sales and in the end, there is even talk of a bordello.

So There Was This Rat

Another wonderful play from the creative and sometimes delightfully warped minds of playwrights, Sapperstein & Murway.  Made for adults, with grown up humor and references, “Rat” promises to keep your audiences laughing long after they’ve left the theatre.

SYNOPSIS:

Myra Guthrie has lost her Mother. Her Father, Virgil Eldridge, is completely heartbroken, and her husband, Carl, insists that he come to live with them.

After doing so, Virgil makes a new friend, Dave McMenamen. Some sort of chemical reaction happens, or something, when Virgil and Dave get together. The mischief meter goes WAY up, and they get into all SORTS of trouble. They have both been hard working men all their lives, and now that they are in their 70’s, they figure it’s time for a little FUN!

Additionally, Myra has five close girl friends. They LIVE for Mah Jongg. As a group, they feed off of one another, and CONSTANTLY jump to the wrong conclusions with regard to just about everything.

Myra is at her wits end, trying to keep Virgil and Dave in toe, when she gets that terrible phone call that no one ever wants. Carl has been in an accident and has been rushed to the emergency room.

Myra falls apart, and suddenly, Daddy reemerges into that strong “in charge” man that she knew she could always count on.

Through it all, she manages to come to know, understand, and love her Father stronger than she ever has.

This is a charming, funny story about family and friendship…and an Ostrich!

OH! Also a RAT!

SYNOPSIS:

Efram Davenport is a very dashing, fastidious and wealthy elder gentleman. These are supposed to be his retirement years but peace and quiet do not seem to be the order of the day.

Living with him are his daughter, Lavinia; her two children, Trudy and Nigel; and regrettably, his son-in-law, Ogden Laime. While Nigel delights in the pictures of naked tribes-women in the National Geographic, and Lavinia and Trudy are sweet, agreeable, kind people … Ogden on the other hand is a definite problem.

The arrogant, pompous and self-centered Ogden Laime wants to go down in history as one of the world’s greatest inventors … but he has no talent as an inventor himself. His solution is to hire true inventors to create great things for him while his business, Laime Inventions, maintains ownership of everything his employees create.

This might not be so bad except that he is infamous for cutting corners. “Mr. Laime’s Inventions” have a habit of not working out so well and for some reason, the Mayor always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. For the sake of his daughter and grandchildren, Efram Davenport is continually picking up the pieces from all the disasters.

After firing one of his inventors, Percival Good, and following the “sound” advice of his clever and in-love secretary, Ms. Caruthers, Ogden releases the object of her affections (Percival), from any contractual obligations to Laime Inventions.

Soon after leaving Laime Inventions, Percival’s simple yet amazing “Good” inventions skyrocket to major acclaim and financial success, causing Ogden so much angst, he begins to lose touch with reality.

Laime Inventions is a humorous journey through the lives of this turn-of-the-century family as they navigate their way through the industrial revolution to find love, success and happiness.
