The Pocahontas County Drama Workshop presents Cahoots, a comedy of crime, conspiracy and cover-up, on Friday May 16 and Saturday May 17 at 8:00 p.m.
Farce runs rampant as two couples who are long-time friends conspire and mis-conspire in this witty and fast-paced caper. A three foot pepper mill, a pink dinner napkin and a Manhattan high rise balcony work their way into the plot’s absurdity.
The play features veteran actor Scott Triplett in the role of Al, whose leadership of a neighborhood crime watch organization leads to paranoia. Drama Workshop newcomer Diana Clarke portrays Al’s wife Lois, a disgruntled fiction editor.
