This happy-go-lucky view of small-town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona’s cozy bordello, until that Puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution.

Excursion Fare

By Dennis Smith

A CWP Mainstage Production

Directed by Thomas Pahl

April 26th through May 11th, 2019

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

The setting is a way station of the dead on route to eternity. It specifically houses people whose bodies have never been found. With Amelia Earhatt, Judge Crater, Ambrose Bierce and Jimmy Hoffa, and a young man whose car careened down a mountain and a girl who jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge. All have some hope for what is yet to come, even those who abandoned all hope entering here. There are games and contests, some comic, some deadly serious, including the last one which determines why they fear facing their destinies in eternity.
