Is it wiser to moralize about infidelity or play it off to your advantage? In Bedside Manners, British playwright Derek Benfield explores the latter scenario.
The comedic farce follows Ferris through a single evening as he takes care of his vacationing sister's rustic hotel. Confronted with the wanton infidelity of his patrons, Ferris agrees to keep everyone's affairs under wraps for a price. This is complicated when the guests' spouses have secret romantic getaways of their own at the same hotel. Ferris struggles to keep the cheating couples from crossing paths.
Allison Remley directs Stage Coach Theatre's version of this production, with the help of actors Jodi Nelson Deerfield, Brian Zuber, Layne Taylor, Greg Simons and Darian Barovetto.
Stage Coach was recently forced to vacate the space it had been operating in for the last 14 years, but the theater company is using temporary locations while searching for a home. All performances of Bedside Manners will be held at the Idaho Outdoor Association.
