Exit Laughing



Run dates: November 12-15 & 19-22, 2020

Directed by Eugenia Giebel


When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the "girls," what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you're Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you've ever done – you "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives, involving a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you're truly living.

Cast Requirements

Cast: 1 male, 4 females.


RACHEL ANN – age 21 (could go up to mid-20’s), a young woman who seems to have issues with life and men until bridge night opens her eyes. Her college major is theater.

CONNIE HARLAND – age 55 (50 – 60 range), mother of Rachel, who finds on this fateful bridge night that life doesn't end at 55.

LEONA – age 50-60. One of Connie's closest friends and a member of the bridge club for over 30 years.  A woman who's a beautician by profession and a rather caustic lush by preference.  

MILLIE – age 50-60. Another of Connie's friends and a long=standing member of the bridge club.  This is a woman who moves to her own special drummer, even though she's the only one who can hear him. 

POLICEMAN/BOBBY- age 23 (could go up to 30 if a good body as he has to strip down to boxer shorts).  A young man of many talents, and they all come to "bare" on the ladies bridge night.
