‘Inspecting Carol” is an adult comedy featuring what can happen when people make assumptions. The play is set in the midwest where a small and struggling theater company is rehearsing their annual Christmas Carol play. The company knows the National Endowment of the Arts will send an inspector to out to ensure the players deserve federal funding. When a lousy actor tries out for the play, the cast believes it is the NEA inspector checking up on them. After a variety of problems occur, the real inspector appears at the worst possible time.
The 11-person cast of “Inspecting Carol” is comprised of South County residents from Morgan Hill, Gilroy and San Martin. The play was written by Daniel Sullivan of the Seattle Repertory Company and directed by Kay Jenny-Spencer.
The show will be performed at the Morgan Hill Playhouse at 8pm on Nov. 18, 19, 25, 26 and Dec. 2, 3, 9 and 10. A 2pm matinee performance will be held on Nov. 27 and Dec. 4. Tickets cost $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. They are available for purchase in advance at BookSmart in Morgan Hill and the Gilroy Visitor’s bureau.
