About the event

Auditions will consist of cold reads from the script.

While written as a delightful laugh-a-minute comedy that Jones, Hope, and Wooten are known for, The Savannah Sipping Society has depth and  poignancy that touches on the true meaning of friendship and what it  means when circumstances force us to adjust to the uncomfortable changes  and twists and turns that life brings.

 We meet four unique Southern women: 

Randa, Dot, Marlafaye and later, Jinx, their new “life coach.”  They agree to meet on Randa’s verandah on Friday nights for cocktails.  They all desire to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, as  they each are going through a dramatic and difficult change in their  life. They are each very different people with seemingly nothing in  common, but are drawn together by fate and an impromptu happy hour! With  a little encouragement, they decide it’s time to reclaim the enthusiasm  for the life they’ve lost throughout the years. Over the course of six  months, which are filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the  occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully  bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together,  they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in  the moment. Most importantly, they realize it’s never too late to make  “old friends” new. So, raise your glass to these strong women and their  fierce embrace of life and say, “Cheers!” to this joyful and  surprisingly touching Jones, Hope, and Wooten comedy.

Characters

Randa  Covington (suggested age mid 40s) Randa is a perfectionist and  workaholic, struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment that,  unfortunately, reveals that she has no life and no idea how to get one.

Dot  Haigler (suggested age mid 60s) Dot is still reeling from her husband’s  recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement.  She also faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from  scratch — and all alone.

Marlafaye  Mosley (suggested age mid 50s) Earthy and boisterous, Marlafaye is a  good ol’ Texas gal. She has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing  her tom-cattin’ husband to a 23-year-old dental hygienist. The strength  of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to  wreak a righteous revenge on her ex.

Jinx  Jenkins (suggested age early to mid 40s) Also new to town, Jinx, a  spunky ball of fire, offers her services as a much-needed life coach for  these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get  their lives on track, she overlooks the fact that she’s the one most in  need of sage advice.

Randa’s  Grandmother (non-speaking role; stage age 81) Grandmother of Randa who  appears and dies. Elegant matriarch of powerful, southern family.
