The Carson Valley Community Theatre will be performing The Savannah Sipping Society, a Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy about four unique Southern women who have nothing in common except each is starting over in life. Brought together by fate—and an impromptu happy hour—they bond and become fast friends through laughter and attempts to reinvent themselves, along with the occasional liquid refreshment.
Randa, a perfectionist and workaholic, is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment. Dot, is reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, and faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch—and alone. Earthy and boisterous Marlafaye has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist. Jinx, spunky and outwardly self-confident, offers her services as a life coach for these women, and finds they can help her as much as she can help them. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and realize it’s never too late to make new, old friends.
Performances will be September 23, 24, 25, and 30 and October 1 and 2. Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 7:30 pm. Saturday and Sunday matinees start at 2:00 PM.
