Love, Lies and
the Doctor’s Dilemma

by Michael and Susan Parker

Bring some friends, your favorite beverage, a snack to share, and come out for an afternoon of fun, where you get to meet your fellow Oak Grovers. We will do an informal script reading of a play that we may use in a future season. We'll provide set ups and good company. You may even get a part!

Host: Joan Swift |151 Heather Lane
Staunton, VA 24401 | 540-886-0075

Director: Sam Koogler

Cast: 3 Men and 3 Women

What happens when ordinary people tell little white lies? How about mistaken identities, unmitigated calamity and ensuing hilarity? It is a quiet day in the life of Joan Scheller and Sandy, her great love and former gardener, until today. Quiet becomes chaos when her overbearing sister-in-law, arrives for Joan’s birthday. Joan unwilling to admit she’s in a relationship, tells her first white lie and introduces Sandy as Doctor Gardener, her psychiatrist. When Vinny The Enforcer arrives looking for Joan’s son, Chris, who is in debt to the mob, Joan introduces him as her security guard. When Chris arrives, Joan gets him into a dress and introduces him as her daughter Christina. To everyone’s amazement, Doctor Gardener’s psychiatric advice seems to work. And Love? Well... this is a Parker farce, so expect hilarious twists and turns before it all ends!
