A modern melodrama / farce for the festive season

This November, Blackwood Players Inc is proud to present the Australian premiere of 'In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should Be Shot)', a hilarious modern melodrama, written by the award-winning playwright Steve Franco and directed by Erik Strauts.

Tickets are now on sale for the strictly limited season (7 shows only).

'In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should Be Shot)' is a laugh out loud play which is suitable for the whole family and a great way to kick off your festive celebrations!

It is 6 pm and the Douglas family is busy preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighbourhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony and his dim-witted sidekick Vinny find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out.

Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage.

The fun play is filled with outrageous smart-aleck teenagers, nosy neighbours and bickering adults and you'll find the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop!

'In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should Be Shot)' will play at Blackwood Memorial Hall, 21 Coromandel Parade on select evenings from the 3rd to 18th November 2017. Tickets are now on sale and early bookings are advised.
