COLUMBIA, KY - TheatreFest! presents a comedy by David Hyer, Lying in State, as the second show of its fifth season.

Lying State, a political farce about a dead senator, opens Thursday, July 13, 2017 and runs July 14, 20, and July 21, 2017 all at 7pmCT, at V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY, is directed by Lindsey Wilson Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock.


This play will feature a cast full of members from previous TheatreFest! Seasons to ensure hilarity.

The fast-paced political farce centers on Senator Ed who, through an unfortunate turn of events, was killed by several bullets caused by his shooting at squirrels. The rip-roaring production gets off to a wild start at the funeral parlor where we meet his ex-wife Edna, his campaign manager, brother and an ex-exotic dancer who claims to be Ed's fiancee, looking for the Senate seat he promised her.

"This play is going to have people rolling with laughter from start to finish." Brock said. "It's going to be a lot of fun for us to watch these very eccentric characters come to life in rehearsal and then it will be even more exciting to let audiences in on their lives."
