A Ray Cooney farce comes to Spotlighters


Most farce fans associate playwright Ray Cooney solely with Great Britain, but "My Giddy Aunt," a comedy he co-wrote with John Chapman, is set in India. Nor is that the only uncharacteristic thing about it. The show, which opens tomorrow at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre, is also part thriller.

Mike Moran, a veteran of two other Cooney comedies, directs this daffy tale of eccentric Lady Eppingham, her unscrupulous nephews and her illegitimate half-sister, who is determined to run Lady E's tea estate. The cast is headed by Sherrionne Brown and Don Romano and also includes Lisa Ann Dickinson, Mike Nowicke and Bob Perry.

Show times at the Spotlighters, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through May 14. (No performances April 21-23). Tickets are $10. Call 410-752-1225.
