8 Women, 5 Men
The Futrelle Sisters - Frankie, Twink, Honey Raye and Rhonda Lynn - are in trouble again.
This time, the problem is bigger than ever: their beloved hometown, Fayro, Texas, is in danger of
disappearing and it's up to the sisters to save it from extinction. Ever since the Super SmartMart and the rendering
plant closed, folks have been leaving Fayro in droves, but Honey Raye, with a major assist from her former nemesis, Geneva
Musgrave, has come up with a possible solution. It seems a salsa manufacturing factory is looking to relocate and a
company representative is headed to Fayro on a scouting mission. Honey Raye, as the president of the Chamber of Commerce,
makes promises that are not to be believed in order to woo the rep to choose Fayro. In fact, Honey Raye has told them
that on the very weekend of the rep's visit, the town just happens to be having their biggest celebration of the year:
'Fayro Days', which includes a craft show, a pet costume parade, a beauty pageant and a huge Civil War battle reenactment.
So now it's up to the citizens of Fayro to quickly make her promises a reality. The biggest hurdle to impressing the
salsa representative is staging a Civil War battle reenactment with only fifteen participants. Added to this is the
dilemma of Twink being so desperate to get married that she's practically dragging the unwilling groom, Deputy John Curtis
Buntner, to the altar. But this pales next to the financial problems the preacher and his wife are having - unless you
don't consider gambling away your mobile home a problem. Frankie, however, seems to have it worst of all, what with her
husband, Dub, going through a major mid-life crisis at the same time her five-year-old twins are literally tearing up
the town. And unfortunately for all of them, the 'meanest woman in twelve counties', Dub's wicked, old Aunt Iney, is
on her way for a visit. Iney's arrival in Fayro is definitely cause for alarm for the sisters; but it's nothing compared
to their panic when the old girl drops dead in the Dubberly home just before the salsa rep shows up. But how the Futrelle
sisters and the other citizens of Fayro, including sweet, simple, Raynerd Chisum, pull together and save their town is a
testament to Southern strength and ingenuity - and a recipe for total hilarity.
A laugh-out-loud farce and a stand-alone play in its own right, SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY is the third play in the trilogy
that began with DEARLY BELOVED and continued with CHRISTMAS BELLES.
