Playhouse to Open New Season


The Playhouse at McConnellstown will open its 2019 season on Friday, May 24, with “Love, Lies, and the Doctor’s Dilemma”

This farce is written by Michael Parker and Susan Parker. Joan Scheller lives with the love of her life, Sandy. To hide their relationship from her overbearing sister-in-law, the former movie star Olivia St. Claire, Joan introduces Sandy as her psychiatrist.

One small deception leads to another. Before long, Vinny the Enforcer, a quintessential Italian mobster, masquerades as her security guard while her son Chris is forced to wear a dress and become her daughter Christina. Further complications occur as Joan’s neighbor Rachael, whose life appears to be a series of catastrophes, creates chaos and confusion wherever she goes.

“The Doctor” is in, and everyone wants a session. Olivia wants to discuss her love life, Rachael wants to know why she’s such a disaster, and Vinny wants to discuss his work as an “Enforcer.” Sandy is forced to listen and give misguided advice, which, to everyone’s surprise, seems to work.

But what about love? Of course, there’s Joan and Sandy if they can survive Joan’s white lies; then there’s Rachael, who is strongly attracted to Chris if he can survive her mayhem. Finally, there’s Olivia, who hires Vinny away from the mob to be her personal security guard (perhaps with benefits?).
