Hickory – The hilarious and touching comedy Exit Laughing, by Paul Elliott, has four performances this weekend, Thursday through Sunday. The show will be broadcast live from the Jeffers Theatre. Tickets are available at hickorytheatre.org.

A trio of southern ladies mourn their dearly departed fourth by “borrowing” her ashes from the funeral home for one last crazy night of bridge. It’s a laugh riot with a touching and tender ending.

Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:30pm, January 14-24.

This production will be broadcast live online. Tickets are $18 for a single viewer and $30 for a household. Tickets for the general public are available through the theatre’s website at hickorytheatre.org.
