Their only hope – OPEN A THEATRE and produce a play in a week to earn a grant! Led by the Mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to rise to the challenge. Two actors play over twenty roles in a world of farce, love and desperation, proving once and for all that art can save the world. This show is a co-production with Tipping Point Theatre in Northville.
