Forever Plaid
by Georgetown Palace Theatre

May. 04 - May. 05

High School pals Sparky, Jinx, Smudge, and Francis are "The Plaids”, a talented guy group, just four nice young men who love singing harmony.  When The Plaids are killed in a car accident on the way to their first big gig, at the Airport Hilton Cocktail Bar in February 1964, the young men linger in limbo as unresolved as their final chord, until the conjunction of various “Astro technical” phenomena allows them to return to Earth, perform their final concert, and hopefully win a place in Heaven; and the deluxe plaid dinner jackets of their dreams.
