SERVING UP LAUGHS ONE PLATEFUL AT A TIME

“This laugh-out-loud comedy follows a day in the life of Sam, an out-of-work actor who manages the red-hot reservation line at the number-one restaurant in town. A cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation: impatient socialites, celebrity assistants, top restaurant reviewers, and even a mobster; interrupted only by demands from a hot-headed chef, Sam’s father, agent, boss, and oh so many more. Graham Ward returns to the CRT stage tackling 40 different characters in this comedic tour-de-force!”

Venue: The Ruth Humphreys Brown Theatre
Genre: Comedy
Content Advisory: This production contains some strong language, dozens of phone calls, and copious name-dropping, and one tired actor after the show.

“It’s 1895 and Jack Worthing is engaged–that is if he can convince his potential mother-in-law to accept him. And that might prove difficult since his fiancé thinks his name is Ernest. Oh, and he doesn’t know who his parents are. Not to mention his ward thinks she’s ALSO engaged to Ernest. Oh dear!
