Betty's Summer Vacation
Anne G. Wilder Theater
Betty needs to get away from it all and lucks out on her first summer share in the Hamptons! But her luck turns to delicious lunacy when this sensible everywoman gets drawn into the chaotic world of her very unsavory housemates — her friend Trudy who talks way too much, the lewd buff boy who likes to grope, and the curiously reclusive man with the hat box. With sand between her toes, and a thin line between sanity and survival, this vacation might leave Betty more terrorized than tan.
