Five on a Honeymoon
Directed by Ellen Cook
This comedy is one of Ruth and Nathan Hale’s (founders of Hale Centre Theatre) funniest plays. The young widowed mother of three has just remarried. Her new husband sets out to bring some badly needed discipline into the children’s lives. The subsequent explosions bring an evening of wackiness and hilarity. Throw in wacky neighbors and a feisty grandma and it becomes really crazy.
