ABOUT THE SHOW
_________________________________________________
_______________
If comedies are your favorite choice of theatre, then Farce of Nature is sure to please!
From Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, the successful writing team that
brought you Dearly Beloved, Christmas Belles, and The Dixie Swim Club, comes the
newest laugh-'til-your-sides-ache Southern-friend farce. The City Theatre Company is
excited to open its 2014 - 2015 theatre season with the hilarious comedy.

Why would someone hide a gun in a refrigerator? Know what, better you
don’t tell me!”
– Carmine, Farce of Nature

Critics, audiences and theatre-goers have fallen in love with Jones Hope Wooten
comedies. They stuff their plays with comic invention, running gags, and a neat sense of
southern absurdity. In their newest show, hilarity accelerates by the minute. Come meet
the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas, and spend an outrageously funny day at The
Reel 'Em Inn, finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Can the lodge be saved from
gangsters, love-starved females, jealous husbands, ruthless corporate executives, bad
Swedish accents, a cranky senior citizen maid packing heat, a jittery man masquerading
as a woman, and vicious varmints right outside the door? A deliciously funny romp ensues,
and by the delightfully chaotic climax of this one remarkable day, love has blossomed,
truths have been revealed and the lives of all - family, guests and gangsters alike -
change in incredible and surprising ways.

This side-splittingly comedy is guaranteed to win audiences over—
hook, line, and sinker!


Jones Hope Wooten are three of the most produced playwrights in America today (over
3,000 productions and counting). They have entertained millions on television, in film and
on stages across the U.S. and around the world. Jessie Jones co-authored the play,
Dearly Departed, as well as its screen adaptation, Kingdom Come starring Whoopi
Goldberg; Nicholas Hope won the Texas New Playwrights’ Festival for his first play, A
Friend Of The Family and was Director of Casting for ABC Television; and Jamie Wooten
has written and produced nearly four hundred episodes of network television, including
four seasons of the classic series, The Golden Girls. All three were born and raised in the
South and write about the South they know best.

The show features veterans of the City Theatre stage including Kim Rubin, Cindy Brown,
Skip Johnson, Tracy Hurd, Craig Kanne, Don Owen, and Katie Trammell with newcomers
Roman Garcia and Rebecca Wooldridge. Guest director Andy Brown leads the cast
having previously directed CTC’s highly successful Moon Over Buffalo in 2013. He has
directed locally in Austin including productions at the Sam Bass Theatre
and the Georgetown Palace.
