Canalside Players present Knickers! A 'Brief' Comedy

Written by Sarah Quick
Directed by Sara Stewart

The paper mill that long propped up the economy of Elliston Falls has been shut down, sending the town spiraling into an economic depression. When a chipper but overwhelmed tourism officer arrives to lend a hand, she discovers an unlikely business partnership in the three brassy friends that make up the local chapter of Weight Watchers.

Could the ladies' plan for a custom underwear business (complete with giant knickers as a roadside attraction) really be the town's salvation? This hilariously irreverent comedy celebrates determination, entrepreneurial spirit, and the willingness to bare it all.

The Canal Bistro will be open for refreshments. Door prizes at every performance.
