Hitched, a comedy in two acts will be presented at Church Hill Theatre for two weekends this fall. The original script, written by local playwright, Earl Lewin is being produced on the CHT stage by BC Productions.

The dictionary defines hitched as loosely tied. Could this explain why it is a slang term for getting married?

Millie, who is divorced, is hosting family members at her home in Phoenix for the wedding weekend of her Brother Harry' s son Jim. Jim is marrying well above his family' s social sphere and the wedding is to be a dignified and formal affair. His father,

Harry, is divorced from Jim' s mother and is flying in from Philadelphia with his latest wife who is half his age. Millie is unaware that her son Bruce, a professor at Georgia State University, is gay. Bruce is bringing his lover, Spike, to introduce him to the family. They are planning to marry soon. Millie' s outspoken obnoxious Aunt from Pennsylvania, who went through three husbands, is among the guests and Millie' s unmarried sophisticated niece from New York City is attending. Millie' s ex husband, now running a mission for orphan boys in New Guinea, shows up uninvited asking Millie to take care of him while he recovers from minor surgery.

This crazy mix of personalities, a disastrous visit to a desert tourist trap and the poor choice of October thirty first for this off beat group of characters to celebrate a wedding reception creates a weekend gathering not likely to impress the members of Phoenix' s social register.

Hitched opens at CHT on September 28th and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm with Sunday matinees at 2 through October 7th, 2018. Tickets are $15 cash and check only. Reservations can be made by calling the CHT box office at 410-556-6003.
