Written by Mark Gee • Directed by Ed Tiley
"Halfway In" is a hilarious new comedy set in the lobby of a southern motel "somewhere between Dothan and Tallahassee." Clark, the desk clerk, is looking forward to a quiet evening until Maggie Shane, who eloped almost twenty years ago with a man who owed almost everyone in the small town money, returns with her husband's mortal remains for burial. The action follows the comings and goings of an eccentric cast of characters including the new head of the Liquor Control Board whose cocktails and marriage are on the rocks, a greenhorn security guard and his domineering fiancé, a manly truck driver named Matilda, a shady lawyer who moonlights as a photographer, a pair of older ladies on their way to meet a cruise ship, and the dead man's brother who lives at the motel because he's "crazier than a bedbug chewing on locoweed."
Through it all Clark deftly manages to keep the motel functioning at a minimum level of sanity as the various characters check in, check out, and generally threaten to erode what little decorum the motel has.
This play was written especially for community theatre groups, and has lots of great parts for adult actors of all ages. There are 11 characters and most of those parts are suitable for actors with little or no experience, small enough to be memorized easily, but big enough to make an impression on the audience.
