A Bad Year for Tomatoes
“A Bad Year for Tomatoes,” by John Patrick, March 13 through May 4, at Early Bird Dinner Theatre, 13355 49th St. N., Clearwater. Evening performances are presented Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with seating at 4 p.m. Matinees are presented Thursdays and Saturdays, with seating at 11 a.m. Cost is $29.90 which includes dinner and show.

This hilarious comedy deals with the very funny misfortunes of a famous television actress who seeks to “get away from it all” in a small New England town. Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marloe leases a house in New England to write her autobiography. Dealing with her nosy omnipresent neighbors turns out to be more difficult than she imagined so she invents a mad homicidal sister who is kept locked in an upstairs room. The ruse works well at first until the local handyman develops an affection for “Sister Sadie” and complications ensue.

Talking With
“Talking With,” by Jane Martin, April 18 through May 4, at West Coast Players Theatre, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $17. Call 437-2363 or visit www.wcplayers.org.

“Talkin With” was the 1992 winner of the Theatre Critics Association Award for Best Regional Play. It is a collection of extraordinary monologues written by the "mysteriously pseudonymous" Jane Martin.

These 11 monologues make up an "evening of idiosyncratic characters who amuse, move, and frighten, always speaking from their souls," and range from a "baton twirler who has found God through twirling, a fundamentalist snake handler, an ex-rodeo rider crowded out of the life she has cherished by a man in three-piece suits who wants her to dress up ‘like Mini Damn Mouse in a tutu,’ an actress willing to go to any length to get a job, to an old woman whose dream is to live in McDonald's.”
