Send Me No Flowers
by Norman Barasch and Carroll Moore
Directed by Kerry Lockwood Owen
July, 1998


From Samuel French:

This Broadway comedy stars George Kimball, a Westchester commuter whose hobby is hypochondria. When he overhears his doctor talking about another patient who is on his way out with heart trouble, he misunderstands and prepares to meet the end bravely. He puts his affairs in order and writes a heartbreaking letter to his wife to be read after his death. He arranges in advance for the soon to be widow to have another beau who will make a good second husband. He buys a cemetery plot big enough for three: himself, the widow and Hubby Two. Complications involve a wifely hunch that the lad is playing footsie, plans for Reno and a false confession.

"Bouquet of laughs." N.Y. Mirror.

From the Director:

My Dad, Harold Lockwood, appeared in the Hot Springs Community Players production of Arsenic and Old Lace in 1948. As the police detective, he made a magnificent entrance, slammed the door, and quite dramatically caused the entire set to collapse onto the actors. He passed that love of theatre on to me, and this show is for you, Daddy. And thanks to Mark Britton for Shanghai-ing me into directing what's a terrific and loving cast and crew. To Robert and my Ray Owen - I am a better person because of you. Enjoy the magic!
