Barter Stage II, Abingdon, Virginia Friday, March 08
(March 8 - May 12) In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while two undercover cops in a room next door wait to catch the meeting on videotape. Confusion ensues as to who’s who and who’s done what and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. A wonderfully unpredictable story of real characters with real needs and fascinating foibles – and as reviewers across America agree, “Whip-smart . . . and unrelentingly funny” (The Boston Globe); “A bona fide gut-busting laugh-a-thon” (Chicago Daily Herald); “A laugh-till-you-weep comedy” (Fort Worth Telegram).
