SYNOPSIS: When Uncle George invites his whole family up for a weekend of fun at his rustic cabin, he actually wants them together so he can read his will. But between the bequeathing and his rambling stories, George drops the bomb that somewhere on the property is a suitcase holding four hundred and eighty thousand dollars! What follows is a hilarious farce of pettiness, slander and greed. The relatives end up wrestling with each other, falling down the stairs and getting stuck in the furniture. "Yes, we're gonna have lots of fun!", says George as he's seen carrying a shovel out the front door. But George's gift is much more important than mere money, even though the relatives don't see it that way at first.
8 roles - 3 MEN, 5 WOMEN
"Uncle George (Porge) Plunkett: A relaxed, very congenial man in his golden years. A woodsman from the cherished past, he spins his tales like campfire smoke.
Mitch Bryant: Joanne's husband, in his late 30's. He sees life through a wise crack.
Andrew Shumway: Gloria's husband, a rather slick urbanite, about 40, something of a con-man.
Margaret (Peg) Blankenship: George's younger sister, a rather suspicious woman in her late 50's. She's the mother of Joanne.
Mamie Jo Durant: Margaret and George's younger sister, in her mid 50's and something of a take-charge individual. She's the mother of Gloria.
Joanne Bryant: George's niece and Margaret's daughter, a loving caring woman, also in her late 30's.
Gloria Shumway: George's niece and Mamie Jo's daughter, a bit of a snob in her late 30's.
Chelsey Bryant: Joanne and Mitch's daughter, around 13 and smarter than most.
Hope to see you there!
