Woodland Middle eighth grade play to be presented Jan. 24
The Woodland Middle School annual eighth grade play, “Aunt Maggity’s Dark and Stormy Night” by Edith Weiss will be presented on Friday, Jan. 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Woodland Middle. Admission is free.
Aunt Maggity, a horror novelist who lives up on an isolated mountain top, keeps black widows in the bathroom, stuffed cobras on her writing desk and a heartbreaking secret just under the surface. When her four estranged nieces — Lavinia the C.E.O., Lola and Chloe, the NY fashion designers; and Francine, the amateur boxer — descend on her home for the reading of their parents’ will, everyone’s lives become topsy-turvy. As if all the relationships and secrets weren’t enough, more mystery enters the scene when one of the nieces disappears and the butler is pushed down the mountain. This play has it all — from creepy spiders, suspense and comedic chaos comes a sense of familial love, forgiveness and what just might be the first happy ending in Aunt Maggity’s career.
