Dearly Beloved

4 Male, 7 Female

Jessie Jones & Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten Price: $9.99

A Southern wedding goes hilariously off-course in this fast-paced comedy about love, marriage, sisterhood, gospel music and three hundred pounds of good ol' Texas barbeque ...

The Futrelle Sisters - Frankie, Honey Raye and Twink - are throwing a wedding

Tina Jo’s mother Frankie has almost made herself sick with the elaborate preparations, and the rumor mill in their small town of Fayro, Texas, is working overtime

No surprise there, the Futrelle Sisters have never been strangers to gossip

After all, they did survive the scandalous breakup of their almost-famous gospel singing trio, The Sermonettes

But Twink’s desperate attempts to get her boyfriend of fifteen-and-one-half years down the aisle, Frankie’s ongoing conversations with their dead mother, and Honey Raye’s tendency to race to the altar at every opportunity have kept tongues wagging for years

In spite of her own marital problems, Frankie has held steadfastly to the hope that she can pull off one “final Futrelle occasion” with elegance and style with the help of the cantankerous wedding coordinator, Miss Geneva, who runs the local floral shop/bus depot

But on the day of the nuptials, Frankie’s hope begins to dim when she discovers Twink’s alternative solution to an expensive catered wedding dinner is a potluck supper sponsored by Clovis Sanford’s House of Meat

When the prodigal Honey Raye arrives at the church in skintight gold lamé, consumed by hot flashes and a steely determination to right old family wrongs, Frankie’s hope is shaken

It is lost completely when word reaches the church that Tina Jo and her fiancé have fled Fayro and eloped

The sisters ultimately pull together to find ways to keep the unsuspecting guests in the pews while a highway patrolman races off to track down the runaway bride and groom

You'll laugh all the way down the aisle

Dearly Beloved is the first play in the trilogy that continues with Christmas Belles and ends with Southern Hospitality
