Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will? takes place in the summer in a small Texas town in anytime, U.S.A., and follows the adventures of the Turnover family as they try to settle Buford Turnover’s affairs before he inevitably kicks the bucket. The problem is, Buford (Tom Berenson) has misplaced his will, and it is up to his four children— the spinsterish Sara Lee (Christie Romo), the estranged preacher’s wife Lurlene (Lori Giles), the beer-swilling Orville (Mike McEver), and the country singer wannabe Evalita (Kelly McEver)— to find it. The Turnover family is less concerned about Buford’s will, and more with bickering amongst themselves about who wronged whom in the past. Sharp-tongued Mamma Wheelis (Gayle Kick) and Evalita’s hippie boyfriend Harmony (Ozzy Osborne) and Orville’s wife Marlene (Kelley Friedberg) try to keep the peace, but even they cannot stop the family from falling apart at the seams. Hilarity, as they say, ensues.
Director Ron Friedberg is no stranger to the BACP, over the past 25 years he has served on their Board of Directors, acted in numerous roles onstage and directed the successful The Odd Couple Female Version in 2013. Ron has been active onstage and off for more than 50 shows throughout the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area. Ron has chosen a wonderful cast of BACP veterans and newcomers that are sure to bring this dysfunctional, irreverent, politically incorrect family to life on stage.
