Rex’s Exes, a sequel to Red Velvet Cake War, was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. The show is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Rex’s Exes is a hilarious comedy featuring the Verdeen cousins of Sweet Gum, Texas, Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette. Gaynelle, frustrated and frazzled from working too many two bit jobs, stubbornly refuses to face the fact that she is turning the big 5-0. In a misguided effort to lift her cousin’s spirits, Peaches, a sassy, morturarial cosmetologist who is stuck in a romantic dry gulch, is determined to throw Gaynelle a surprise birthday party she does not even want. Meanwhile, Jimmie Wyvette, riding high on the success of her new wedding gown boutique for big gals, Wide Bride, reluctantly agrees to help Peaches surprise Gaynelle.
The play takes many comedic twists and turns throughout the show. As the outrageous complications of this funny Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy explode into chaos, you will find yourself hoping your next family celebration is just as fun.
Marsha Passemore, resident of the Board of Directors of PCE said, “Rex’s Exes is a funny production and a great way to start the new year. Laughing is a good thing for all of us to do, and you will certainly leave refreshed.
We welcome all of our neighbors for all of our shows, and we guarantee to make you feel at home. You are only a first timer once, and then you are a part of the PCE family.”
