Don't Tell Mother will hit the stage at CentreStage Theatre in Kentville in January.
On the evening that timid librarian Cinnamon Schmidt and her mother are to entertain her fiance Hobart and his mother at serene family dinner, Cinnamon comes home in shock because she has witnessed a bank robbery and is the only one who can identify the crook. She confides her terror to chum, Deedee Malone, not daring to tell her mother. Joe the Federal Agent arrives to check out a case of tax evasion and ends up checking out the case of a witness to a bank robbery. And then the fun begins! The pace is rapid fire, the dialogue hilarious and the laughter non-stop. It promises to be a great evening to chase the winter blahs away.
Written by Monk Ferris, this play will appeal to all audiences. It is directed by Wayne and Linda Marriott.
