The event will feature 90 accomplished artists from the region and from across the country who will bring their best work to compete for $5,000 in prize money.

Taylor HarveyMatilde, an earthy young Brazilian housekeeper, would rather be onstage delivering comic lines than wielding a feather duster for her employer, an uptight doctor named Lane. Along with her frustrations about her messy home, Lane discovers she’s about to lose her surgeon husband to his 67-year-old Argentinian breast cancer patient. Thrown into the mix are a loopy quest to find a healing yew tree in Alaska, an extended dirty joke told in Portuguese, and a sponge-wielding sister who finds scrubbing bathrooms to be therapeutic.

Michael WeaverI have always been intrigued by the titles of Broadway plays. How many times have you attended a show and found yourself still wondering what the title had to do with the play long after curtain call? This was my thought when I first heard about “The Drowsy Chaperone,” the opening show for May River Theatre Co.’s 16th season.
