Diamonds & Gold and Festival Foods present the next Let Me Be Frank Productions show of our 2023 season, “Fort Howard: We Wipe America,” at the Meyer Theatre, September 15-October 14, 2023.
You never know what will happen when the boss calls a meeting – especially at Fort Howard. A group of factory employees have gathered per boss John Cofrin’s request. Come to find out, the company has gone 100 days without a work-related injury (which is quite the feat with this crew!). Each day without an injury results in a paid bonus from Fort Howard’s insurance company. Mr. Cofrin believes it’s time to give back to the employees with a party at the Zodiac Club. The employees simply must make it a few days without an injury, and a party with an open bar is all theirs. During a shift, a problem arises that could threaten their fun and cause the party to be called off. Can the employees band together and come up with a solution? You’ll have to find out in this all-new and all-original show.
“Fort Howard: We Wipe America” opens at the Meyer Theatre Friday, September 15th, at 7:30pm with a benefit show for NEWCAP inc. NEWCAP’s mission for half a century has been to move people from poverty to opportunities and economic security while enhancing community development.
