Farce of Nature

Season: 2023 Main Stage Season

Author: Jones, Hope & Wooten

Director: Ann Mitchell

Genre: Comedy

Location: Winder Cultural Arts Center


The non-stop hilarity of this Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. Meet D. Gene Wilburn, the owner and proprietor of the Reel ’Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Well, it used to be, but lately business is down, tourists are few, and the lone guest who’s just checked in—an extremely jittery Carmine DeLuca from Chicago—is only there due to a location shift in the Witness Protection Program. Doesn’t anybody just want to fish anymore?  Yet by the delightfully chaotic climax of this one outrageous day, love blossoms, truths are revealed, and the lives of all—family, guests, and gangsters alike—change in incredible and surprising ways.
