The Sunflower Theatre at KSJD will present the comedy play “Savannah Sipping Society” on four nights in December.
According to a news release from the theater, the Sunflower Troupe production is at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 8, 9, 15 and 16 at the theater, 8 E. Main St.
The play is directed by Peggy Tennyson and was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.
In the comedy, four Southern women, all trying to escape their daily routines, are drawn together during an impromptu happy hour and decide it’s time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost, the Sunflower release said.
The perfectionist and workaholic Randa – played by Kim Welty – struggles to cope with a derailed career that reveals that she has no life and no idea how to get one.
Dot (Robby Henes), reeling from her husband’s demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life alone.
Earthy and boisterous Marlafaye (Linella Miller-Dunlap), a good ol’ Texas gal, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a 23-year-old dental hygienist. The strength of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous revenge on her ex-husband.
The energetic Jinx (Peggy Tennyson) offers her services as a life coach for these women.
However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she overlooks the fact that she’s the one who most needs sage advice.
Over the course of six months filled with misadventures and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-age women bond and find the confidence to jump-start their lives.
Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment and realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
