MAMA WON’T FLY!
Williams will be directing a hilarious comedy that opens this
May. The name of the show is Mama Won't Fly.
Written by the same authors as Dearly Beloved,
Dixie Swim Club and many more great shows.
outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when
Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty
mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her
brother's wedding. Savannah's problem: Mama won't fly. With only
four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter
has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally
willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama's vintage sedan. As
Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip,
another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager
bride-to-be arrives unannounced.
Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is
convinced that traveling together to her wedding is the perfect
way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent
when the journey begins and comedic chaos ensues. Every
conceivable - and inconceivable - mishap that can occur does,
including the theft of their car and all of their clothes, a
near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental
homicide of an ancient relative, a mad dash across the desert in
a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that
ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister.
misadventures multiply, the beleaguered trio rapidly develops
the urge to ditch each other anywhere along the way. Eventually
the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the
overwhelmed bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their
age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work
together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising and
heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for
their own relationship and welcome Hayley into their
delightfully wacky family. This ferociously funny,
family-friendly Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy will have you laughing
your way across the country and all the way down the aisle!
urged to put this one on your to do list and save the date!
dates for Mama Won’t Fly are Sunday
Mar 31 and Monday Apr 1, both at 7pm.
show dates are May 10, 11, 12, 17 and 18. For more information
