Get embroiled this month in the comical antics of Jon (Corey
Hendricks) and Leslie (Stan Gentry), two out-of-work musicians
in New York City as they try to pull a fast one on everybody,
including the government, in Love, Sex and The IRS. The
Newnan Theatre Company is currently presenting this comedy of
tax errors written by William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore at the
intimate Black Box Theatre located at 24 First Avenue in Newnan.
A small discrepancy in Jons joint return becomes the subject
of much more deceit than originally planned when Floyd Spinner
(Charlie GiIlespie) of the Internal Revenue Service shows up
and spoils everybodys fun except the audiences. Jons
girlfriend, Kate Dennis (Dr. Jenny Price) tries to help the guys
conceal their transgression, but things really go awry when Jons
mother, Vivian (Susan Gillespie) arrives.
The three act play, directed by Dave Dorrell and Jeff Allen,
runs Friday & Saturday, July 9 and 10, 16 and 17, 23 and
24 at 8 p.m.
Dorrell first encountered this modern farce written in the early
80s when he played the role of Leslie in a production mounted
in Michigan. The shows director bargained to get the play
produced and proved he knew a good comedy when he saw it as the
show played to packed houses every night. This play is part of
the Artists Series and intended for mature audiences.
