The feuding Futrelle sisters put the "fun" in dysfunction in Dearly Beloved, a Southern-fried wedding comedy coming to Marietta's New Theatre in the Square. The rumor mill in Fayro, Texas, has been working overtime from the moment siblings Frankie, Honey Raye and Twink started planning the "wedding of the century." No surprise there -- the trio have been Town Topic No. 1 since the breakup of their almost-famous gospel singing group, The Sermonettes. But now caught up in a Texas twister of gossip, God and gunfire, they desperately attempt to pull off the Gone with the Wind-themed nuptials for Frankie's daughter ... even as the bride herself goes missing. This LOL-worthy comedy was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, the successful team behind stage hits like The Dixie Swim Club, The Savannah Sipping Society and Doublewide, Texas.
