Customer Comments:
By Phaidra Yunker - High Plains Staff Writer
Barely Heirs is a wonderfully enjoyable play. It is apparent that the cast is having a fantastic time with the ludicrous plot twists. Jane, a thirty-something woman, needs a husband and she needs one now. In her desperation, she enlists the help of her best friend, Claire, and her neighbor, Tom. To explain the plot any further would destroy the fun of the play. That is the nature of farce: the delight is in the surprise...this play is wacky, absurd, totally hilarious, and not appropriate for young audiences.
By James Patrick - Harwood Plains Playhouse (ND)
Lassig’s second play in as many years should firmly plant him in the minds of avid theatre-goers as a rising star to watch. I predict that soon theatres everywhere will be clamoring for the rights to the next Lassig farce, to fill their houses (and their bellies) with laughter! You will not leave disappointed. Clear your calendar, pay the babysitter, and get out and see this show! I saw the show opening night, and I’m going again tonight! How’s that for an endorsement?
All Jane needs to do to collect her inheritance is get married and wait six months – simple enough. But who wants to go through the hassle of finding a husband? Jane’s friend Tom has agreed to pretend to be her spouse for the afternoon so that Jane can stay single and keep the money for herself. Everything is set to go off without a hitch, and by suppertime, Jane should be rich. That is IF Tom shows up on time, IF Jane can get rid of Tom’s real wife, Claire, and IF she can distract the pool boy and the bothersome police officer who keep stopping by unannounced. Yes, the whole plan should still work out as long as Jane keeps these people, along with the interior decorator, the nurse, and her ex-boyfriend, away from her meddling mother who just “happened” to stop by.. Will Jane lose everything or just barely pull it off?
