The director of the Moon Lake Community Theater, Missy Bailey, has dreamed about directing a production of the 1930’s psychological melodrama/comedy titled “Night Comes Early”. As a teenager she saw a professional production and it had a lasting impact. The opportunity has come–a dream come true for Missy Bailey –She encounters overwhelming obstacles; cast members who have psychological issues, don’t know their lines and drop out at the last minute. No one is ready on opening night, a few roles are not cast, and the set is not complete, but the SHOW MUST GO ON! This is a fast-paced farce that shows the anxiety of a director attempting to mount a production that is way beyond the capabilities of her cast and crew.
