It’s not looking like the brightest of Christmases for Private Investigator Cactus O’Riley. She’s got too much work to do, deals with unwanted attention from a deputy district attorney while the man she really wants, her secretary, Fred, is a bit too attached to his mother. All that to deal with and then a couple of fugitives burst into her office seeking help.
That’s the set up for the holiday mystery comedy “A Christmas Cactus” by Eliot Byerrum, opening Dec. 4 and continuing through Dec. 22 at the Lemon Bay Playhouse, 95 W. Dearborn St.
Bob LaSalle directs a cast that includes Kim Fisackerly as Cactus, Rick Moore as Fred and Lee Lawler as Fred’s mother. LaSalle also plays an illegal alien in the show.
Tickets are $18. For more information: 475-6756; lemonbayplayhouse.com
