About the play
News flash: Famous TV actress Myra Marlowe was reported missing from her Beverly Hills mansion on Saturday, April 1, 1975 by her housekeeper.
Her long-time manager, Tom Lamont, held a press conference and stated, “There is no truth to the rumors that Miss Marlowe has entered the Betty Ford Treatment Center. She has decided to take a trip around the world and will be returning to Hollywood this fall to begin filming her new CBS TV series, Dora Dean, Blind Detective. After ending her Emmy award-winning role as Granny Gurton in the long-running hit TV show, Moonlight Mountain, she needed some time off to restore her spirit.”
After following Lamont back to the east coast, a reporter learned that Miss Marlowe is not taking her so-called trip around the world but she is hiding out in New England in a small town called Beaver Haven. After interviewing several local residents, it has yet to be determined if Marlowe is truly there.
“The only new person in town this year is that lovely Myrtle Durdle, and she is no more a TV star than I am,” said Reba Harper.
“She’s just one of us,” said her neighbor, Cora Gump. “She has a garden and is trying to grow tomatoes.”
Is the rumor true? Is Myra Marlowe really taking a trip around the world? Or, is she hiding out in Beaver Haven?
Come and learn the truth in the AAAA Theatre’s winter comedy, A Bad Year for Tomatoes, which features a talented cast.
A Bad Year for Tomatoes is directed by Betsy Ostenson. After successfully directing theater for Prairie Wind Players Community Theatre in Barrett, including the first three “Sven and Ole” plays written by Kevin Lee, Ostenson is making her directorial debut at the AAAA theatre.
