Published DateHOLDERNESS — Evoking Ben Franklin's adage, "fish and visitors smell in three days," the original play ''Houseguests'', opening this month at Holderness' Little Church Theater, features visitors and includes a fish.
"But this lakeside comedy" says theater director Lisa Lovett, "is about secrets and love."
The first play of the season for Holderness' Center for Creativity: Houseguests, is written and directed by local author Jessica Hoffmann Davis. Set in the smallest town in New Hampshire, it tells the story of a retired couple whose serene life is hilariously disrupted by a visiting family of old friends.
The ensemble cast includes Suzanne Bannister of Plymouth, Dan Mitchell of Portsmouth, Ursula Boutwell of Gilford, Bill Tedrow of Waterville Valley, Tom Klein of Sandwich, Rodney Martell of Laconia, and guest artist Emerson Davis.There will be four performances from June 27-30.
