Author's Notes:
Virgil teaching Ellard how to propose to Bertha Mae using the various items Virgil finds in the shed are the highlight scenes in this show. Make sure the items are large enough to be seen by the audience. Don't rush these scenes so Ellard has time to really soak in what each item is supposed to remind him to say. The audience will adore Ellard and his simple nature in this play.
Sometimes, everything that can go wrong will. It's summer and time for backyard fun and the semi-annual Sludge family get-together. The morning of the relative disaster begins with the snooty yankee neighbor next door, Pamela Chambers, who warns the Sludges that she plans to draft a petition for eviction because the Sludge's noxious, weed-infested landscape does not promote a safe and attractive community. Scrambling to get the plastic silverware polished and fried chicken on the grill, Eloise considers Pamela's uppity threats empty threats until an officer shows up to arrest Harley Wayne, Eloise's husband, for trampling Pamela's perennial garden with his four-wheeler. The barbeque heats up when Virgil and Margaret have their first real lovers' spat and Ellard, Virgil's best friend, proposes to Virgil's sister using visual aids, and the 95-year old matriarch of the family announces her plans to elope with her new boyfriend, Mr. Perky. The bedlam continues in this hilarious but true account of the worst family reunion in the history of the Sludge's nutty family tree.
