The feuding Futrelle sisters put the "fun" in dysfunction in Dearly Beloved, the hilarious and heart-warming production at Coronado Playhouse. The rumor mill in Fayro, Texas, has been working overtime from the moment the sisters started planning the "wedding of the century." No surprise there -- the sisters have been Town Topic No. 1 since the breakup of their almost-famous gospel singing group, The Sermonettes. But now caught up in a Texas twister of gossip, God and gunfire, they desperately attempt to pull off the Gone with the Wind-themed nuptials ... even as the bride goes missing. Gary Cohen directs this Southern-fried comedy written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Critics Circle Award.
“Leaves a sharp, poignant, lasting impression.” —New York Times
The play takes place on Labor day Weekend in the joint back yards of two middle-aged widows. The one house belongs to Flo Owens, who lives there with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire group. Hal is a most interesting character, a child of parents who ignored him, self-conscious of his failings and his position behind the eight ball. Flo is sensitively wary of temptations for her daughters. Madge, bored with being only a beauty, sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the excitement Hal promises. Her sister, Millie, finds her balance for the first time through the stranger’s brief attention. And the spinster is stirred to make an issue out of the dangling courtship that has brightened her life in a dreary, minor way.
