The Book of Liz

Pounce to follow

A sold out benefit performance, followed by a reception, and a game of Pounce – a Mormon family card game that has become a tradition with Klunch company members. Drinks, music, and other forms of gaiety, all to support the Klunch’s 2017 programming. Was lots of fun.

Despite her truly horrible perspiration problem, Sister Elizabeth Donderstock is living a happy life in the Sqeamish community of Cluster Haven. She did, after all, invent the world famous cheese ball recipe that put the religious order on the cheese ball map. But then, one dark day, Brother Brightbee shows up to unseat Liz as queen of cheese – demoting her to harvesting chives! Overwhelmed and ashamed, she flees the sect, forging bravely into the outside world. Back in Cluster Haven, though, the famous cheese balls aren’t selling well at all since their famous flavor seems to have disappeared with Sister Donderstock.
