A full house at the Back Alley Community Theatre laughed all the way through the presentation of Southern Fried Funeral Sunday afternoon. The Journal and friends came to see what it was all about. We were not disappointed.
Highlight of the performance was when a character that really deserved it got a banana cream pie in the face. No explanation needed.
The play takes part in a rural town in Mississippi but the stereotypes fit our area as well. It seems that Dewey has died and his family grieves over the loss while trying to jockey for position in the family.
We don’t want to give away too many of the laughs and certainly not the whole plot. But you can probably guess the story line.
There are performances remaining this weekend. Friday and Saturday nights curtain goes up at 7:00 pm.
