Mother Truckers”  come to  Center Square Golf Club in Worcester.

The original comedy, by local playwrights Judith Sapperstein and Gary Murway, is presented by MCT (Methacton Community Theater) in partnership with the Center Square Golf Club Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons beginning March 6 through  15.

Maryland based truck driver Nelson Wormly has passed away leaving his widow, Maxine (Lauren Franz of Eagleville), owning more than their house on the new Peterbilt 389 they had just purchased.  How is Maxine going to now pay the bills without losing her shirt?  Well  … learn how to drive a big rig and take over Nelson’s runs of course.

Maxine’s sister, Charlotte (Deb Marotta of Collegeville), offers to go along for company and assisted by Maxine’s lovable yet intensely micromanaging neighbor, Mary Ellen (Jennifer Hanahan of Schwenksville), they pack the truck to take off on their first run.  It’s a rocky start for the two sisters but soon they are reassured after meeting fellow trucker “Sugar Daddy” (Keith Truman of King of Prussia) over the CB who promises to gives a “shout out” to the other gear jammers traveling the I-95 corridor to keep an eye out for the ladies on their maiden voyage.  Things get complicated when they meet Roy McCoy (Geoff Randall of Schwenksville), a strange little guy with very big feet and a prostitute named Trixie (Alisa Ambrose of Philadelphia).

Under the direction of Michael Dobbins of Audubon with Loretta Rurode of Eagleville producing, Mother Truckers marks the seventh dinner theater production by MCT.
