When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the “girls,” what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you’ve ever done. You “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living.
The direction is by Walt Thompson, set design by Rodger Hoopman, with lighting design by Andrew Fiffick. The cast includes Kate Muris, Julie Thompson, Patricia Lee Schmeltz, Cattaryna Tekin and Ben Whitlach.
