Update: Grindrod Players puts its new play up for an ‘open house’

The Grindrod Players' knee-slapping farce, Straight from the Horse’s Mouth, has been rescheduled due to the recent fire at A.L. Fortune.

• Due to the fire at A.L. Fortune Secondary Friday, a re-scheduled performance of Straight from the Horse’s Mouth will now take place at the Enderby school April 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. and April 24 at 2 p.m.

Modern Family’s Phil Dunphy has nothing on this gal.

The escapades of a wheeling and dealing real estate agent are at the core of a comedy adventure being presented in Enderby.

The Grindrod Players stage the knee-slapping farce Straight from the Horse’s Mouth at the A.L. Fortune school theatre.

Written by Pat Cook and directed by Alice Brown, the plays follows Katy Bittlemeyer, agent-owner of Dream House Inc., a real estate company “where all your dreams come true.”

Brittlemeyer’s dad, Mel, and her boyfriend, Jeff, try their best to support Katy in her business dealings, although they don’t always agree with her questionable style.

With her sharp wit and savvy marketing  business sense, somehow she can make the best out of any unique “opportunity.”

As it happens, some opportunities are a lot bigger than others.

Katy finds this out when she purchases the Lydecker estate, along with “…any and all items located on the acreage.” Katy’s staff do their best to juggle the daily operations of the business. This proves challenging as the sneaky and conniving psychiatrist neighbour, Clement Caligance, is looking for a way to get Katy evicted. He may have just found it. And just exactly why is that lady from the Better Business Bureau here? And who is that “character” in the fedora?

Tickets to the play are available at the door to the A.L. Fortune theatre. General admission is $8, seniors and children 12 and under are $7.
