    Tickets: $24 Guests / $20 Members / $27 At the Door

    By the Talent Family (David & Amy Sedaris)
    Directed by Craige Hoover


    Sister Elizabeth Donderstock is Squeamish, has been her whole life. She makes cheese balls (traditional and smoky) that sustain the existence of her entire religious community, Clusterhaven. However, she feels unappreciated among her Squeamish brethren, and she decides to try her luck in the outside world. In this hilarious satire from the Talent Family, David and Amy Sedaris, no comic nugget goes un-mined, and no funny-butter goes unchurned.

    Here's a review I found but I edited out the middle so as not to be a spoiler.

    David and Amy Sedaris are always a good time. I have seen lots of people carrying around Sedaris' bestseller When You are Engulfed in Flames this summer.One gal told me that everyone stares at her when she is reading at the beach- lots of spontaneously erupting giggles.

    I wish I had grown up as a member of The Talent Family!:lol:

    Sorry, Toots. It's real. We went swimming today and he had to braid it and wrap it up over his head like Heidi so that me and Cowboy didn't get caught in it like an old fishing net.

    What a great opening night!!! Reception was soooo fun. Pizza and company was Sowallian. I met NoHall tonight. That was an unexpected treat. Make this a must do on your summer list. Way to go Rep.

    It was a full house of fun- lots of great members in the audience, and the show was hilarious. I am so tired from laughing that I have to go to bed.

    The members reception was fun- Great to see you Dunelaker! And your sweet other half too.:wave: Being a Rep member has some great benefits- fun shows, good opening night gatherings, and being with your friends and meeting new ones!

    Thanks everyone for supporting the Rep and the arts!:wub:

    What a great, great time. Buy tickets immediately because you'll want to see it again later.

    It was hanging from his chin--it's dark this year instead of green. (We had great fun with Cowboy, pretending it was "sea snot!")

    I was so happy to meet you, too! SoWal was well represented!

    See this show sooner than later, because tickets will be hard to come by.

    Last night's performance was excellent! It is difficult to believe that those four actors could play so many characters so well. This show is a must-see!
