Lunchpail Theatre presents

A Bad Year for Tomatoes by John Patrick


Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny hamlet of Beaver Haven, and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbours is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some privacy, Myra invents a crazy sister. The ruse works well, at first, but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for “Sister Sadie” and some of the local ladies decide it is their duty to save the poor demented Sadie’s soul.
Featuring: Stephanie Yuill, Cheryl Inward, Dawn Collins, Natasha Bhogal, Eli Purchase, Arlene Cliffe-Phillips and Roy Dahl.  Directed by Karen Pandke.
