Funny Little Thing Called Love
This deliriously funny new Jones Hope Wooten comedy is all about the four-letter word: L-O-V-E. Under a full moon on this unpredictable night of romance, these four-rollicking tales take you on an around-the-globe journey of hilarious twists and turns. A slick, successful used-car-selling Romeo in Dallas, Texas, believes he's answering Cupid's call, only to realize he's wandered into a life-changing trap set by three fed-up Juliets. In Hawaii, the Hallelujah Girls, five gals from Georgia, say aloha to their wild sides as they accidentally crash a Hawaiian honeymoon in progress. These women -- and Waikiki -- will never be the same. In a rooftop London bistro, sparks fly when two strangers surprisingly start to connect, only to be thwarted by a hyperactive American tourist who demands to be the center of attention, and the unpredictable antics of an ancient waitress who wields a wicked sousaphone. And finally, in Manhattan, a man tries to battle his way out of a mid-life crisis with an ill-advised and elaborate marriage proposal. Unfortunately, it goes off-track when his caterer passes out, a tap-dancing singing telegram girl breaks into sobs rather than song, his ex-wife saunters in wearing nothing but a bathrobe and a smile, and a cowering superhero inches nervously across his twelfth-floor window ledge. So, open your heart to romantic mayhem. When the evening is over, and the moon works its magic, love will conquer all and your sides will ache from laughter!
Dial "M" for Murder
Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of one thousand pounds, and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately, the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn't baffle the husband. He sees his hireling's death as an opportunity to have his wife convicted for the murder of the man who tried to murder her, and that is what almost happens. Luckily, the police inspector from Scotland Yard and a young man who is in love with the wife discover the truth, and in a scene of almost unbearable suspense they trap the husband into revealing his guilt, thus freeing Margot.
Alice in Wonderland
As the curtain rises, Alice slides into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to get back home. She tries to get help from the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit, and from the very nice Cheshire Cat. Long enough to contain the most delightful incidents, it is short enough to keep audience attention.
