The Suwannee Valley Players have begun rehearsals for their winter comedy Misconceptions by Michael Vukadinovich. The comedy, directed by Janice Grant with the assistance of Mike Humphries and Gregory Mercier, is a story about lies and misconceptions that lead to a host of misunderstandings.

Two sisters, Claire (Susan Lastra) and Dora (Elizabeth Phillips), are opposites when it comes to just about everything, and this night is no exception. Claire has spent her day at a funeral, while Dora has been at a wedding. But while Dora complains of not being able to meet anyone at the wedding, Claire admits to running into an old fling, Peter (Frank Lastra), at the funeral.

There is one thing about which the two sisters do agree. Their mother (Janice Grant) is starting to worry them with her seemingly random comments about boats of clothes, red meat and Jimmy Stewart.

Enjoy this hilarious comedy as it unfolds with erroneous conclusions, realizations, and coincidences that are sure to bring side-splitting laughs.

Performance dates are Jan. 9 and Jan. 10 at 8 p.m., Jan. 11 at 2:30 p.m., Jan. 16, Jan. 17 at 8 p.m., Jan. 18 at 2:30 p.m. at the Chief Theater on 25 East Park Ave. in Chiefland.

The play is being presented with special arrangements with Eldridge Publishing Company.
