About Artist Retreat

This play is about two years old–it won a playwriting award in 2022!  You won’t want to miss our rendition of this play! “It is a free-spirited comedy about a group of artists trying to save the decrepit old dwelling they call home.”

Retired dancer Mother Dee lives in an aging mansion and hosts an eclectic group of artists, including those who practice the art of gardening, poetry, clowning, and even bodybuilding (though he really wants to dance).  But despite the overtime efforts of handywoman Hacksaw, the mansion’s electricity is spotty, the roof is caving in, and ”the duct tape is structural.”  To pay for repairs, Mother Dee tries to access a family trust, but straight-laced banker, Penny, breaks the news that the funds can only be used to start a for-profit business.

Luckily, Penny has a heart and helps the kooky group of creatives dive headfirst into finding a business model.  But when the artists fumble their business pitch, their confidence wanes, insecurities are revealed, and Sally’s giant chickens run amok!  Just when it seems the artists have no business in the business world, they convince would-be customers to become faithful clients of the arts at their retreat.
