‘One Slight Hitch’ mocks our all-too-human attempts to shape our own destiny

0 comments

One Slight Hitch comes to the Joan Jenks stage beginning May 28. In this Lewis Black farce, Doc and Delia Coleman’s daughter, Courtney, is getting married. Her mom and maid of honor thought they had the Old English Rhyme covered (you know, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue). But never did Courtney imagine that her something old would come in the form of her ex-lover, Ryan, who shows up clueless on her wedding day grungy and in need of a shower after returning from an extended hiking trip out of state. So much for Delia’s best laid plans for her daughter’s “perfect wedding.”

Speaking of perfect, director Scott Lilly has assembled the perfect (and I mean PERFECT) cast for Lewis Black’s contemporary farce, which mocks our all-too-human desire to shape our own destiny.  Anchored by Southwest Florida’s Queen of Farce, Danielle Chantell, the cast includes Len Becker, Rosie DeLeon (PJ), Sharon Isern, Terry Libby and newcomer Jay Carmona.

Once upon a time that Old English Rhyme warded off evil spirits and helped guarantee good luck and fertility to newlyweds. But who are the “newlyweds” in this hilarious wedding romp? One Slight Hitch runs May 28 through June 13 in the Joan Jenks Auditorium at Golden Gate Community Center.
