Welcome to our small town of Anytime, Texas, U.S.A. It’s a family reunion and Daddy is about to die. Surrounded by this patriarch’s clan of children who have come to support their elderly dad and find out the contents of his will, things get out of hand. It is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit.
"A masterful comedy" ~ Variety
"A well-written piece of mainstream theatre that's consistently funny and occasionally touching" ~ L.A. Times
Written by Del Shores. Presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals
FRI, FEB 10, 2023 @ 7:30PMPresented by Temecula Valley PlayersAndrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools.” While Andy is off at war Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should, and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. However Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.TICKETS:$35 Regular

We invite you to join Sherry Williams and her quintet of jazz legends as she shares glimpses of the fifty-year musical journey that got her to where she is today. Sherry’s career extends from the screen to the stage. She has worked extensively in and around the Los Angeles and Denver areas at high-end jazz venues. She has also had the opportunity to tour with legends such as Debbie Reynolds, Andy Gibb, and Johnny Ray, to name a few. In 1998 she released her first solo project, The Way You Love Me, to rave reviews. Her second project, A Taste Of Sherry, was on the Grammy ballot and featured a song from the film soundtrack of The Core. Touring with Markus Burger and Jim Linahon yielded more recording projects. Sherry continues to work with multiple jazz greats today, and her smooth signature sound draws fans from near and far to share in the jazz experience that is Sherry Williams.
Each month, Stand Up Comedy in The Merc features some of the best comedians in the country. The headlining artists have numerous TV and film credits (HBO, Netflix, Comedy Central, Showtime) and currently touring the country. Stand Up Comedy often sells out, so purchase tickets in advance.
We look forward to laughing with you!
