Alley Theatre presents The Carpenter
Developed during the 2017 Alley All New Festival, this world premiere farce comes from the author of the Alley’s hit Hand to God. Dan is a self-made man from blue collar Houston while his fiancé is from Dallas - Highland Park, to be exact. As they arrive at her father’s palatial mansion for their wedding, Dan starts to get cold feet. His college buddies are trying to get him drunk, his future father-in-law keeps shooting his rifle into the ceiling, and his sassy sister can’t put the pill bottle down. When the carpenter shows up to build the wedding gazebo, looking suspiciously like Dan, all hell breaks loose. There are mistaken identities. Family secrets. Accidental partner swaps and laughs. So many laughs.
