According to Mimi Holloway, the show's director, the plot and dialogue are very current. "It's about greed, money and passion," Holloway tells us. "It's a small town, and if the company closes, it pretty much destroys the town. So it's not just a fight for profits, it's a fight for the workers." As serious as that sounds, the show has lots of humor. "And there's a subplot," Holloway says. "Larry is attracted to the lawyer hired to defend the company." Money, greed and the hots for opposing counsel? Yeah, this could get a little messy. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. April 18. Through May 1. Theatre Southwest, 8944-A Clarkcrest. For information, call 713-661-9505 or visit www.theatresouthwest.org. $15.
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: April 9. Continues through May 1, 2010
