When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the “girls,” what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you’ve ever done. You “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living.

Characters:

  • RACHEL ANN (20’s): A moderately attractive college student who seems to have issues with life and men until bridge night opens her eyes. She has a bit of an attitude.
  • CONNIE HARLAND (Mid-Late 50’s): Rachel’s mother. Discovers on bridge night that contrary to what she believes, life doesn’t end at 55.
  • LEONA (Mid-Late 50’s): One of Connie’s closest friends and long standing member of the bridge club. Beautician by day and caustic lush by preference, which is evident in her voice.
  • MILLIE (Mid-Late 50’s): Another of Connie’s friends and long standing member of the bridge club. She marches to the beat of a different drummer. She is the one who “borrows” the ashes of the fourth member of the bridge club.
  • POLICEMAN/BOBBY (20’s): Rachel’s love interest and male stripper. Must be able to pull off a modified strip tease convincingly.
  • BUTTER-BUT: The cat. Makes a couple of appearances so we need a real cat who can be carried on and off and not be freaked out by an audience.
