NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NECCESSARY!
Dot invites her book club to her cabin for a girls’ weekend. However, after the third case of wine comes through the door, it becomes clear there will be more stewing than reviewing. As bottles tip up, secrets spill out and men sneak in. “Girls’ Weekend” is a lightning-quick farce written by Karen Schaeffer, a community theater veteran from Iowa.
DOT – A woman in her 50s or 60s who orchestrates the girls’ weekend. She has a 30 something year old son named Stephen.
MEG – In her 40s, she is dating Dot’s son, Stephen and has a 20 something year old daughter named Ellie.
CAROL – A woman in her 30s who is trying to have a baby with her husband, Rick.
ELLIE – Meg’s single, free-spirited, 20-something year old daughter who doesn’t really want to be at the girls’ weekend.
STEPHEN – Dot’s 30-something year old son, who is in a relationship with Meg.
RICK – Carol’s husband, who is in his 30s.
SHERIFF TOM LANE – The newly elected sheriff who is in his 40s. He is divorced.
BUBBA – A local townie in his 20s. He went to college with Ellie and currently works for his dad.
