October 9 – 19, 2014
Endearing comedic characters carry the story of the Fuller family as they escape the New York rat race to buy, renovate and reside in a dilapidated country Colonial farmhouse w here allegedly history was made! A hilarious handyman leads the pack of neighbors, architects, relatives and unpredictable weather as together they wreak havoc on the Fuller’s idyllic dreams. The exemplary writing inspired the very funny 1942 film featuring Jack Benny, Ann Sheridan and Percy Kilbride.
