The Cookie Fight
by Wimberley Players
Nov. 18 - Nov. 20 (2019)
“The Cookie Fight” is both funny and relatable to anyone who has attempted to go home again (as many of us have!) You will be laughing out loud with the colorful cast of characters: three siblings - an embattled CEO, an under-employed actor and a born-again Christian - who gather in their childhood home for Christmas and begin a fight over the financial and spiritual future of their family, their country and, yes, a cookie. As their battles escalate, the action spills over into the strangely comforting corner convenience store and its unprepared owner, Gus.
