HOOEY-HAHS & FOOFARAWS:

THE COMPLEAT BUTTON MAN’S PICKET FENCE

PARTY PLANNER

by H. Russ Brown

The sleepy little burg of Battue Haven, MN, is an idyllic suburban gem of picket fences and manicured lawns until, suddenly, with a literal Bada-bing-bada-BOOM!!… the sudden arrival of two mob enforcers causes what started as a simple cookout with the neighbors to quickly explode into a hilarious all-out rough-and-tumble tizzy of chaotic complications, esoteric entrées, and highbrow hoodlums on Pallduva Lane!

This man knows farce!

I found myself laughing from the moment I read the title of this show! I’m a firm believer that farce is an important form of theatre, especially in these serious times. We need to laugh. And H. Russ Brown is a master of the form. (He’s bringing silly back!) This show has a wonderful velocity, right off the jump, and Brown finds ways of marbling in more mayhem and absurdity to keep the fun coming. Will it need a team that is a combination of daring, skilled, and shameless? Of course! But the physical stuff in particular, in adept hands will kill! If your audiences are begging to laugh, do this show!
