Valle Drama Club presented “The Red Velvet Cake War” by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten in the Boverie Building on March 21-23, 2014.
THE STORY: In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three Verdeen cousins—Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette—could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Their outrageous antics have delighted local gossips in the small town of Sweetgum (just down the road from Fayro) and the eyes of Texas are upon them, as their self-righteous Aunt LaMerle is quick to point out. Gaynelle is one frazzled nerve away from a spectacular meltdown. Peaches, the number one mortuarial cosmetologist in the tri-county area, is struggling
to decide if it’s time to have her long-absent trucker husband declared dead. And Jimmie Wyvette, the rough-around-the-edges store manager of Whatley’s Western Wear, is resorting to extreme measures to outmaneuver a neighbor for the affections of Sweetgum’s newest widower.
