FARCE. Winner of the East Repertory Theatre’s Annual Playwriting Competition. When Aaron arrives to pick up his prom date, he gets to meet her “parents” for the first time. While his girlfriend is getting ready upstairs, Ronald and Nancy engage Aaron in some small talk over a few glasses of Mountain Dew. But as the parents begin guzzling Mountain Dew, they begin to act crazy—really crazy! Ronald begins smoking Nicorette patches, Nancy brandishes a cap gun, and the two end up in a WWF wrestling match in the middle of the living room floor. And to top off all the madness, Aaron’s prom date appears dressed as Wonder Woman! NOTE: For a full evening of Minnesota madness, combine this play with another one-act from Greg Elsasser’s Pelican Rapids Trilogy, a collection of plays that features delightfully wacky characters from Minnesota: Shoe Booties (30 mins), The Baby Who Came to Dinner (30 mins).
