I was cast as Marvalyn (Really, who came up with these names?!) who is a lonely girl doing laundry at a boarding house where she and her boyfriend, Eric, are waiting for their house to be repaired. She accidentally whacks Steve in the face with an ironing board and learns about his disability of not being able to feel pain. Hilarity ensues. It was quite a fun part to play. I have also decided to incorporate "Jeezum Crow!" into my everyday language.
Here are some photos from the production. (Courtesy Theater Bartlesville.) Enjoy.

Jeezum Crow! I love these people.

|Time to go. Have an accidental whack in the skull Steve.|
|"Are you sure you're okay?"|
"Is there any blood?"
"Is there any discoloration?"
"Then I'm okay!"
|My turn to get hit in the head with the ironing board!|
