PLANT CITY ENTERTAINMENT, INC.
IS PLEASED TO PRESENT
'THE RED VELVET CAKE WAR'
By:Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten
In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three
Verdeen cousins (Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette) could not have picked a
worse time to throw their family reunion.
Their outrageous antics have delighted local gossips in the small town
of Sweetgum (just down the road from Fayro) and the eyes of Texas are upon
them, as their self-righteous Aunt LaMerle is quick to point out.
Having “accidentally” crashed her minivan through the
bedroom wall of her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide, Gaynelle is one frazzled
nerve away from a spectacular meltdown.
Peaches, a saucy firebrand and the number one mortuarial cosmetologist
in the tri-country area, is struggling to decide if its time to have her
long-absent trucker husband declared dead.
And Jimmie Wyvette, the rough-around the edges store manager of
Whatley’s Westerm Wear, is resorting to extreme measures to outmaneuver a
priss-pot neighbor for the affections of Sweetgum’s newest widower.
But the cousins can’t back out of the reunion now. It’s on, and Gaynelle’s hosting it. Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette have decided its
success is the perfect way to prove Gaynelle’s sanity to a skeptical
court-appointed psychologist. Unfortunately,
they face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gather on
the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season.
Things spin hilariously out of control when a neighbor’s
pet devours everything edible, a one-eyed suitor shows up to declare his love,
and a jaw-dropping high-stakes wager is made on who bakes the best red velvet
cake. As this fast-paced romp barrels
toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this
