Exit Laughing

A mature comedy by Paul Elliot.

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly card game night 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 Alabama, you "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives ensues. Life and death work in mysterious ways and even with the absence of one of the Foursome, the gang still manages to take their friendship to a new level of fun, hilarity and poignancy! 

With a knockout cast that includes Mindy Vinqvist-Tymchuk and Kathy Boutilier (role-share), Junie Hutchinson, Jeannie Myles, Scott Coleman and Charlotte Crouch, Exit Laughing will have a tear in your eye both from the belly laughs and the serious moments. This mature comedy written by Paul Elliot is directed by Bryen Stoddard and Alan Tupper, produced by Mike Butler and recommended for a mature audience due to some adult subject matter. 

Come for a card game/wake you'll never forget!
