This wasn't supposed to happen, you understand. Last December, co-conspirators Jeffrey Moore and Rachel Klem took their final bows as Meemaw Hussey, the dowager countess of a certain doublewide in West Durham, and her semi-doting daughter-in-law, Loraine, in the farewell production of their low-rent holiday farce, A Trailer Park Christmas, which coincided with the closing of Common Ground Theatre. But theater, to paraphrase Jeff Goldblum, finds a way. Luckily, when puppet master Torry Bend pulled her current work in progress from the December slot at Manbites Dog Theater, the whole dysfunctional clan was standing by to pick up the slack. In its tenth-annual production, nerves are on edge because Christmas isn't the only thing approaching Row M, Lot 16. An eviction notice and a late-season hurricane are also on the way. What's worse? Meemaw and Loraine ain't getting along; one's been sniping at the other now for days. Surely no one would use a holiday family reunion to have it out or expose the most shameful family secrets. —Byron Woods
