Escanaba In Love

A comedy by Jeff Daniels

Presented with special permission from The Purple Rose Theatre Company



The prequel to Escanaba in da Moonlight, Escanaba in Love runs the gamut from slapstick humor to warmhearted drama. In this funny and at times raunchy play about the Soady family and their men-only deer camp in the Upper Penninsula, 18 yr old Albert Soady, Jr. shows up with his new wife, Big Betty Ballou, whom he just won in a kissing contest. Albert Sr. is aghast and a battle of the sexes ensues. Hang on for laughs in this Yooper comedy.
