ADLIB presents

Poster for Squabbles

ADLIB Drama Club presents Squabbles, a comedy by Marshall Karp that originated in 1982 at the American Stage Festival in Milford, New Hampshire and the Waldo Astoria Dinner Playhouse in Kansas City, Missouri.

Summary: Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles married to an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is the not so happy Abe Dreyfus, Jerry's curmudgeon of a father in law. Abe is a funny guy to the audience, not to Jerry. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry's mother Mildred loses her house in a fire and needs a place to stay. Abe and Mildred can't stand each other. This play is one hilarious confrontation after another until the heart warming finale in which the oldsters discover that, really, each is not so bad.

Playing April 27th through 29th, 2017 at the Community Theatre at 566 Stephen Street South in Boissevain, Manitoba. Doors will open at 7 pm each night with show time at 7:30 pm.
