The play "Lucky Stiff"-- an amusing farce that centers around a wheelchair-bound corpse-- has seen many iterations since it's off-Broadway debut in the 1990's.
But it got a healthy dose of local talent in its currently-running Centre Theatre adaption, as mother-daughter directing duo Eleanor Griffin and Marusia Griffin Lynn put their spin on it.
Griffin told the Times Herald that "the show will keep you laughing…from start to finish," adding "“I find myself laughing out loud as I accompany the cast."
According to the piece, Griffin worked as a music teacher at Plymouth Junior High, now Colonial Middle School, and raised Marusia in the area with her husband, Bill.
Griffin Lynn would attend Catholic University of America to study musical theater after graduation from Kennedy-Kenrick Catholic High School. She racked up a number of professional acting credits before joining forces with her mother, the paper reported.
Ticketleap describes the show as:
"A zany, offbeat, musical murder mystery farce complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities, six million bucks, and a corpse in a wheelchair. An unassuming shoe salesman is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently-murdered uncle to Monte Carlo. Should he pass his uncle off as alive, he stands to inherit millions. With a tuneful score and a well-oiled plot, plus the ultimate happy ending, Lucky Stiff guarantees hilarity for one and all."
The show runs this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
