LPS presents “Hitched” by Earl Lewin
January 13, 2018 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Hitched is a slang term for getting married. The dictionary defines it as loosely tied. Millie who is divorced, is hosting family members at her home in Phoenix for the wedding weekend of her brother Harry’s son Jim. Harry is divorced from Jim’s mother and is presently married to a woman who Millie’s Aunt Rhoda describes as fat, drunk, and half his age. Brother Harry is flying in from Philadelphia with his current wife and is trying to hide a serious health issue. Millie is unaware that her son Bruce, a professor at Georgia State University, is gay. Bruce is bringing his lover, Spike, so he can introduce him to the family. Millie and Harry’s sophisticated niece is coming from New York City, and Millie’s ex husband, now running a mission for orphan boys in New Guinea, shows up uninvited asking Millie to take care of him while he recovers from minor surgery.
Jim is marrying well above his family’s social sphere and the wedding is to be a dignified and formal affair. The event, unavoidably falling on October thirty first, is a clash of cultures. Though the plans do not go smoothly, we get to know and marvel at the relationships that make this crazy family care about and love one another.
