The Edisto Art Guild presents the Edisto Players in “Mama Won’t Fly,” directed by Cheryl Van Metre, at the Edisto Civic Center March 22, 23 and 24. The play — written by Jessie Hope, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten — tells of a hilarious race against the clock to get a feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her son’s wedding — and Mama won’t fly! So a cross-country road trip in Mama’s vintage sedan is the only way to go.
This funny, family friendly comedy will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle.
