It's the British vs. the Americans in Totem Pole's New Romantic Comedy

Like a "shot heard around the world," You Say Tomatoes by Bernard Slade, author of the Broadway smash Same Time, Next Year, opens at the Totem Pole Playhouse on June 16. Playhouse favorite Paris Peet and newcomer Caren Anton star in this hilarious romantic comedy about Giles St. James, a recluse British mystery writer and Libby Daniels, a punchy New York film producer. Giles' traditional British way of life is upended when Libby discovers his hidden home, aspiring to televise the mystery novels he wrote under a pen name. "What I love about this play, apart fro the wonderful humor, is that the love story takes place between two folks who are not 20 some things-but more mature folks at a different point in their lives," says Artistic Director, Ray Ficca. Long time friend of Ficca's and former Producing Artistic Director, Carl Schurr, was recruited to direct the comedy. "Bernard Slade has given new meaning to the expression: 'Opposites attract' and not only do they attract in You Say Tomatoes, they explode into a light-hearted and joyous evening of theatre," says Schurr. Wil Love, Totem Pole's legendary funny man, and Jenna Sokolowski round out the cast of this sidesplitting war of words. You Say Tomatoes is sponsored by The Orchards Restaurant, Chambersburg.
