Gussie Richardson is a famous food columnist and cookbook author. Her agent comes to tell her she's been offered her own daily network television show. She wants to do it, but her husband Walter is dead set against it and Gussie discovers she has stage fright and can't open her mouth in front of a camera.

 

Everybody tries to help her get over it . . . her husband, her agent, and even her wacky neighbour! Just when she thinks she's cured, the taping turns into a comic nightmare concluding in an all out food fight that almost ends the show and her marriage.

 

Cookin' with Gus brings together four unlikely characters in a stew of hijinks and hilarity.

In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol.

 

They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren't) and engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system.

An over-the-top holiday treat!

The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base.

 

This time Froggy has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So Froggy, before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English.

 

Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said.

 

The fact that he does understand fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry!
