READY TO HAVE A ROACH-SLAPPING GOOD TIME?

Come to the beautiful Château Laroche for a weekend get-away, where you’ll be greeted by a friendly host of…  cockroaches!!  Crawling with slapstick humor and circus-like stage action, this award-winning comic farce will take you through a weekend in the lives of François and Mimi Laroche, the French proprietors of the château on the shores of a peaceful American lake.

The owners are horrified to discover the enormity of their cockroach problem as they prepare for a big weekend of visitors.  Why do the cockroaches have to appear just when they’re trying to make a good impression on a famed travel writer?!  On top of that, they’ve learned the health inspector is making a surprise visit — disguised as a typical guest!  Could the inspector be one of the young honeymooners?  The wealthy widow or her hypnotist?  The British bicyclist?  The manager of a bratty child star?  François launches an all-out war on the creepy-crawly creatures as the disgruntled staff members struggle to hide the pesky problem from the hotel guests.  Even with the help of a zealous exterminator, Roskel T.  Goomey, the roaches quickly and hysterically adapt to the chemical assault and begin to grow bigger, while the supposed health inspector hallucinates after mistakenly using the toxic bug powder on his spaghetti, thinking it was Parmesan cheese!  You’ll have a foot-stomping, roach-slapping good time with this eccentric and eclectic cast of characters!

With lively and fast-paced dialogue and great opportunities for physical humor, the play provides a hilarious look at the price humans pay for attempting to control nature and is sure to delight audiences of all ages!  And don’t worry, staging the cockroaches is not a pesky problem at all!
