Stage Coach Players (SCP) will be presenting the deliciously funny comedy, The Red Velvet Cake War, by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. The play opens September 9, 2021 and runs for two weekends. The fun happens in Sweetgum, Texas, where the three Verdeen cousins are hosting their family reunion. A reunion that couldn’t have come at a worse time. It happens to be the hottest day of year and right in the middle of tornado season and the cousins always seem to be on the verge of catastrophe. The Red Velvet Cake War is directed by Scott Montavon with Leigh Foulk assistant directing.
The cousins, Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Verdeen have been delighting the locals with their outrageous antics for years and the weekend starts when Gaynelle crashes her minivan through the bedroom wall of her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide. That’s when things get downright funny.
Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten have authored more than twenty-five comedies. SCP produced one of their comedies, The Dixie Swim Club in 2016. One of the authors, Jamie Wooten, wrote and produced for the television series The Golden Girls.
