In community theatre, it's all about the drama.
It’s May 1973 when a young man wanders into a dilapidated community theater in Reading, PA. The company members welcome him with open arms, perhaps only because they need a set painter! He then proceeds to soak up all the idealism and craziness that comes with being part of a struggling theater company with big dreams. A comedy, written by Douglas Carter Beane, who is known for; The Nance, Sister Act, The Little Dog Laughed, As Bees In Honey Drown, and many others. According to the playwright, "This story isn’t the truth. It’s the only way I know how to tell the truth, which is through fiction.”
