OPENING OCTOBER 31ST!!
A Jones Hope Wooten Comedy
"…and, yes, it's set in Texas! This deliriously funny Southern-fried farce finds
the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas—Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie
Wyvette—teetering on the brink of disaster again. Gaynelle, frustrated and
frazzled from working too many two-bit jobs, stubbornly refuses to face the
fact she's turning the Big 5-0. In a misguided effort to lift her cousin's
spirits, Peaches, a sassy, morturarial cosmetologist who's stuck in a romantic dry gulch, is determined to throw Gaynelle a surprise birthday party she doesn't even want. Jimmie Wy, riding high on the success of her new wedding gown boutique for big gals—Wide Bride—reluctantly agrees to help Peaches surprise Gaynelle. But it turns out the surprise is on them when, in a
startling twist, the party plans shift to a hastily thrown-together family
funeral instead. The hilarity escalates when Peaches' recently declared dead
husband unexpectedly returns and his romantic links to each of the cousins is
revealed. And the hits just keep on coming as a Cajun bounty hunter who's
tracking Peaches' husband crashes the funeral and a jilted bride holds the
Verdeens hostage with a loaded paintball gun. All the while, the cousins
struggle to avoid their bitter Aunt LaMerle who's hell-bent on cracking the
ranks of the elite Daughters of the Nation of Texas and exacting revenge on the Verdeen girls before the dirt hits the casket. As the outrageous complications of this ferociously funny Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy explode into chaos, you'll find yourself hoping your next family celebration—be it birthday, wedding or funeral—is even half this much fun!"
