St. Luke’s Players bring another comedic farce to the stage on Cedar Hill X Road.

In Barely Heirs, playing May 20 to 31, Jane is about to inherit a fortune.

The only stipulation is that she has to be married for six months before she can receive her inheritance. All would have gone without a hitch had Jane really been married. With the help of her neighbour’s husband, Tom, she just needs to keep the truth from the lawyer, Tom’s wife, Jane’s ex-boyfriend, Jane’s mother and a cop. Things definitely get complicated in this show written by David Lassig and directed by the team of Neville Owen and Sharon Sutherland.

There are evening and matinee performances at St. Luke’s Hall, 3821 Cedar Hill X Rd.

Visit stlukesplayers.org for detailed showtimes. Tickets are available at Ivy’s Book Shop, 2188 Oak Bay Ave.
