Fall dinner plays

WILTON – The popular Dinner Plays will return to the Second Congregational Church Parish Hall on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. A tradition going back almost 30 years, the plays were suspended during the pandemic.

This year’s menu includes pork loin with homemade applesauce, mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad, rolls and dessert. Cost is $20 per person.

The two one-act plays are comedies, “A Murdered Mystery” and “Big Bad and Little Red.”

“A Murdered Mystery” is a play-within-a play and opens with the butler holding a gun, standing over a body. The butler assures us that things are not what they seem and this is not a simple case of “the butler did it.” He introduces the other characters, but the play falls apart for the actors are as jealous, petty and conceited as the characters they play.

“Big Bad and Little Red” is a courtroom comedy/drama where the Big Bad Wolf is on trial facing numerous counts from the Two Little Pigs to the woodsman and Granny Girzelda, but maybe the Big Bad Wolf isn’t as bad as people think.

The plays are directed by long-time play participant Bill Goddard.
