The Ellice Theatre, February 16 to 19, 2011
Artwork for Sunday Costs Five Pesos

Bring your date, your spouse, or the rest of the family to this romantic comedy for Valentine's week!

Trouble brews in Old Mexico, when Fidel's wife-to-be Berta suspects a love triangle. A plot hatched by her meddling friends to fix the situation backfires, and the village erupts into hilarious mayhem.

This famous script by Mexican-American playwright Josephina Niggli once featured Bettie Page in its off-Broadway cast, and is still certain to entertain!

WITH: An Opening Act of humorous scenes and monologues on the theme of love, marriage, and relationships.
