This Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. The struggling family fishing lodge, the Reel 'Em Inn, becomes the backdrop for a motley collection of flawed characters stirring up a hilarious comedic stew. In the deliciously funny romp that ensues, they all hide, lie, disguise themselves, cross-dress, and slam doors, while trying to figure out the source of an increasingly awful stench. By then it's too late and the lodge is surrounded by vicious critters and hungry varmints that have followed the odor down from the hills. In the delightfully chaotic climax of this one outrageous day, love blossoms, truths are revealed, and the lives of all-family, guests and gangsters alike-change in incredible and surprising ways.

Farce of Nature Cancelled
Dear Tlt Patrons,
Due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19 and a recent exposure to our cast we, unfortunately, have decided to cancel our upcoming performances of The Game’s Afoot for November 19, 20, & 21, 2020. It is true that we are concerned with attendance numbers but most importantly we are concerned about the health of our cast, crew, and patrons.
At this time we do not have a postponement planned, but with some hope and luck we may be able to bring this show back at another date or in another season. Our current plan is to push forward for our next production of Evita in February. We will be constantly monitoring the situation in our community in order to make informed decisions about each of the remaining shows this season.
We want to say thank you to our cast and crew for their hard work and preparation for the show. We are sad that we cannot present it to you but we know this is the best decision for our community. We love Jefferson City and we want to make sure we are doing what we can to stop the spread of this illness. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of The Little Theatre and the arts in Jefferson City.
