It’s 1952: America’s on the verge of the H-bomb, Republican General Dwight Eisenhower, then president of Columbia University and formerly supreme allied commander in World War II, and Democrat Adlai Stevenson, governor of Illinois, are on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy’s on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor—or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.

Stage Coach Players began in DeKalb County in the summer of 1947, shortly after World War II had ended and America was ready to entertain and be entertained. The first season of plays were performed in a large barn on the John Ellwood Ilehamwood Farm. Permission was received to use the farm’s antique stage coach as a ticket office, hence the name Stage Coach Players was coined, and the troupe became the area’s only live theatre company. The Stage Coach Players is a non-profit organization with a clear mission “to foster an appreciation of the theatre and create opportunities for all those interested in the theatre to participate.” Today, they are one of the oldest, continuously operating community theatre troupes in Northern Illinois.
