Fred Carmichael has written more than 50 plays which have premiered at the Dorset Playhouse in Dorset VT to rave reviews. We are sure that "Don't Mention My Name" will have you rolling in the aisles!
In this laugh-out loud comedy our hero has temporary amnesia and stumbles into a guest house where it turns out he was expected all along! He gets called by one name and then someone else calls him another, and someone else surprises them all and calls him by yet another name. As our heads spin the hero and another guest band together to solve the mystery, only to find people are not who they seem they are, but all have the identical purpose!
The plot becomes more and more hilarious until all questions are answered, including who the hero is, with a surprising twist ending!

Old Church Theater is now a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation. It has taken us a year to get there. What does this mean to you?
The biggest change for our patrons and supporters is that any gifts or donations you make to Old Church Theater can be tax deductible (depending on your tax status - consult your accountant or tax preparer). If you are interested in donating, please contact us. You may make an unrestricted donation or you may specify a restricted purpose for your donation. Ask us how!
It also means that we are now eligible to apply for grants and other funding sources that were not available to us before. So we'll be tackling projects that were beyond our means until now.
