Very clever script. Well acted. Intimate stage to audience ratio but not intimidating at all. Smile, Chuckle, Laugh, Repeat.

The Process Theatre Company presents the Atlanta premiere of Topher Payne’s Lakebottom Proper, directed by DeWayne Morgan

Tad and Rowena Tuttle reside on the “good side” of Columbus, Georgia’s ritzy “Lakebottom” neighborhood, and are desperate to get their daughter, Portia, accepted by the prestigious Brookstone School. But minutes before the head of the Parents’ Association is scheduled to arrive for drinks, Rowena’s hillbilly mother arrives from Colquitt, a mutant farm animal escapes in the park, and the ransom note is found: Portia’s been kidnapped.
