‘Beer for Breakfast’ a masterpiece of modern mirth


Coming to the Joan Jenks stage at Golden Gate Community Center September 23 through October 9 is The Studio Players’ production of Sean Grennan’s comedy Beer Before Breakfast. It’s a study in silliness, and masterpiece of modern mirth filled with clever dialogue and hilarity.

Four middle-aged buddies reunite for a “guys’ weekend” — complete with old music, cheap beer and enough cholesterol to stop Superman’s heart.  These guys are out to prove they’ve still got it, so they are going to party like it’s 1979!  It’s all going well until one of them doesn’t show up…but his wife does.  Snowed in overnight, an epic struggle ensues: will man be judged the superior sex or will woman prevail?  Will love triumph or will the old grudges win?  And finally, perhaps most importantly, if Doritos are made of corn, why can’t they be considered a serving of vegetables?

Directed by Bonnie Knapp, Beer for Breakfast stars Mitch Frank, Louise Cornetta, Greg Birr and Matt Flynn.
