CLEARWATER - “Rex's Exes,” a comedy by Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten and Jessie Jones, is presented by West Coast Players, Jan. 17 through Feb. 2, 2014, 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. “Rex’s Exes” is a sequel to “The Red Velvet Cake War,” presented last year by West Coast Players. They’re back! This deliriously funny Southern-fried farce finds the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas, teetering on the brink of disaster again.
As Gaynelle stubbornly refuses to face turning the Big 5-0, Peaches and Jimmy Wy, who is riding high on the success of her new wedding gown boutique for big gals – Wide Bride – are planning a surprise party. But the surprise is on them when party plans shift to a quick funeral, a visit from an ex-husband come back to life, and a hostage situation involving a jilted bride. Add in Aunt LeMerle, Uncle Aubrey and the rest of their wacky friends and family and audiences will find themselves hoping their next family celebration is even half this much fun.
