“The Book of Liz,” an outrageous comedy, will have you laughing in your seat and begging for a break.
Serious themes are rare and the only reason for a few is to give you a break from the side splitting laughter.
“The Book of Liz,” directed by New Richmond local Vicki Harmon, will be showing at the St. Croix ArtBarn, located in Osceola, and The Space, located in New Richmond.
Meet Sister Elizabeth Donderstock, a cheese ball-making member of a vaguely Amish sect who gets pushed down and around by the Reverend Tollhouse and new arrival Brother Nathaniel Brightbee.
Eventually she can’t take the pressure and runs off to the big bad world outside where she meets a Ukrainian immigrant with a Cockney accent dressed as Mr. Peanut, a slew of recovering alcoholic restaurant workers and an unorthodox doctor in favor of leech treatments.
That is just the pretext for some of the funniest writing and acting you’ll see anywhere.
Performance dates at the St. Croix ArtBarn are July 10-12 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved by calling 715-294-2787.
