Valley Theater Company will close its 2018-19 season with five performances of “Weekend Comedy.” By Sam Bobrick, the play relays a comedic clash of generations when two couples mistakenly rent the same cabin for the same weekend.
Middle-aged Peggy (Amy Householder of Grandview) has dragged her reluctant husband, Frank (Damon Johnson of Prosser), off for a long weekend in a remote cabin — with no phone, no newspapers, no television and no kids. Peggy has romance on her mind, while stick-in-the-mud Frank is dully wondering what they’re going to do all weekend.
Peggy finally gets Frank in the mood, only to be interrupted by the arrival of Jill (Ashleigh Thornock of Prosser) and Tony (Ben Riley, also of Prosser), a pair of twenty-somethings who have rented the same cabin. The renting agent’s mistake creates a lot of tension, a lot of comedy and a few lessons between generations.
Mark Humann is the director, assisted by Linda Pietz; Mari Page is the producer. Performances will be April 26, 27, May 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m.
