Two Witches, No Waiting
Two Witches, No Waiting, a comedy by Pat Cook
June 12-20, 2021
Directed by Stacey Greenawalt
Eccentric sisters Arlene & Elzbeth are quite comfortable in their family home deep in the woods of South Texas. But Arlene's son is determined to sell it to his spoiled fiancee's father. Also, he might be falling in love with the new housekeeper. Chaos ensues when the house makes it known that it does not want to be sold. What happened to the old houskeeper? Why is the Sheriff so skittish? And why must Elzbeth feel everyone's head? Find out in this heady brew of twists and turns, in TWO WITCHES, NO WAITING.
This show has been in the works since October of 2019. A year and a half is a long time, but I am grateful to everyone who has worked on this show. We were just two weeks away from opening in March of 2020 when we had to shut down. In the year since, four actors have had to move on but they helped shape the show nonetheless. Special thanks to Barbara Rose, Thaynne Olsen, Levi King, and Rusty Cook for being part of the journey.
We invite you come visit Coventry House (with authentic cobwebs and dust!) and see what we've been up to!
