A Bad Year for Tomatoes (2012)

Bad Year for Tomatoes

Written by: John Patrick

Directed by: Penny Petersen


Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven, and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbors is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some privacy, Myra invents a mad homicidal sister, who is kept locked in an upstairs room, but who occasionally escapes long enough to scare off uninvited visitors. the ruse works well, at first, but complications result. Myra announces that her imaginary sibling has suddenly gone off to Boston….which brings on the sheriff and the suspicion of murder! The uproarious doings will keep audiences laughing right up to the final curtain, and then some!
