TULALIP — The Marysville Arts & Technology High School is presenting the play "And Then I Wrote ..." from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 14, on campus at 7204 27th Ave. NE.
In this showbiz comedy, a producer and his secretary and other associates try to rewrite a drama by a neophyte playwright into a broad farce, while a gossip columnist tries to blackmail the producer into marriage, and a scatterbrained old character actor erroneously creates the impression that the leading lady has died.
The playwright, who's also an apprentice mortician, is appalled by the histrionics that accompany the opening of a Broadway show, and as the columnist draws mistaken conclusions that the show is a cover for a murder cult, the rest of the group fosters this impression by substituting a lady undertaker in the role of the still-alive leading lady.
Mistaken identities, romance and silly situations are designed to keep the audience laughing through three acts.
Admission costs $8 each, or $1 with a canned food donation.
