Barn Lot Theater announces Farce of Nature opening June 17

By Ann Moss

Barn Lot Theater, the nonprofit performing arts organization that features live performances in Edmonton, KY, will debut the hilarious comedy Farce of Nature at 7pmCT on Thursday, June 17, 2021. This will be their first play inside their theater space since the pandemic shut down live performances nationwide in 2020.

Barn Lot Theater is located at 207 S. Main St., Edmonton, Kentucky. Show dates are June 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 24th, 25th, 26th, and 27th at 7pmCT on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances, and 2:30pmCT on Sundays. Masks will be optional for patrons. Present your vaccine card for a free small popcorn!

Farce of Nature highlights a day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas. D. Gene Wilburn owns a fishing lodge that has fallen on hard times, but that's the least of his worries on this day. His discontented wife, Wanelle, is frustrated with their love life and believes D. Gene has a wandering eye. His gun-happy ex-cop sister, Maxie, uses the lodge as a safe house to protect mob snitch Carmine DeLuca, who is in the witness protection program.
