One of the most entertaining nights in theatre, “Rear Widow,” is now playing at Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre outside Cool Springs and just one mile from the Loveless Café off Highway 100 in Nashville, through Saturday, October 9.
The hilarious comedy-noir was created by notable playwrights Dietz Osborne and Nate Eppler as an homage to the dark film noir movies “Double Indemnity,” “Sunset Boulevard” and “Maltese Falcon” but with a hilarious Osborne & Eppler comedy twist.
Taking the classic whodunnit detective tale, the team weaves and winds its way through intrigue and romance making full-use of the Chaffin’s in-the square stage area. It’s a rich and delightful comedy with splashes of Garrison Keillor’s “Guy Noir” character, which Osborne says he hasn’t had the chance to hear on “Prairie Home Companion,” along with doses of fourth-wall breaking ala “The Office” humor with the attractiveness of the cast of “Castle.” Yep, these actors Martha Wilkinson, Jennifer Richmond, B.J. Rowell and Osborne & Eppler are a good-looking bunch to spend the evening with and crazy funny to boot.
“She was like whisky ice cream….I wasn’t sold on the whole package but I sure like the flavors on their own,” reflects insurance detective Judd Cain. So many humorous lines, you’ll want to steal them for your next party or at the very least your Facebook status.
Grab your parents or your teens for a family night of fun. It really is exhilarating walking out the door after being thoroughly entertained by the Nashville areas hottest new playwrights. More info and reservations, 615-646-9977 or visit www.dinnertheatre.com.
