Night Comes Early by Burton Bumgardener

Night Comes Early is a parody on community theater. Tired of the standard fare of comedies set in NYC, a community theater director wants to put on a psychological melodrama set in Yorkshire, England. The cast is made up of the director, the director's professional actress daughter, the local sheriff, an 8th grade English teacher, the Lutheran pastor's wife, an undertaker and two ex convicts who go about creating the roles in a unique and alternative fashion.

Directed by J. R. Colbeck

Performed March 5, 6, 7, 2015 at the Tibbits Opera House.
