Life After Elvis written by Jason Milligan and directed by Mike Mazza will open the evening, suggesting that Elvis didn’t die in 1977. In the play, he faked his death and entered the Witness Protection Program, and has been spending his time living in the back room of different peoples apartments.
Next, director Jim Connors will bring to life writer Jim Lee’s Will Someone Please Tell Me What’s Going on Here? When Harold and Lucille find themselves bored one evening, Harold tries to bring some excitement into their lives, and they end up involving their neighbor and a police officer that just happens to be in the neighborhood.
Finally, the evening will draw to a close with When God Comes For Breakfast You Don’t Burn the Toast, written by Gary Apple and directed by Julia Scheer. In the play, part of God’s job is to visit people, and everyone gets a visit. But what do you cook for the Almighty when it’s your turn?
