7 Redneck Cheerleaders Returns Tonight at The Lillian Theatre
Feb 19, 2015
7 REDNECK CHEERLEADERS is the story of a novice playwright and expert push over, Ben, attempting to direct his first play at the advice of a favorite aunt on her deathbed. He meets a Hollywood theatre producer at Trader Joe's and the Equity-waiver hell begins. Ben's play within the play is an American Tale of a small town boy, Young, who against the wishes of a tyrannical, Podunk father, is determined to become a high school cheerleader for the sake of love. Out of his element with actor-types, Ben rehearses the cast in their redneck roles. Hearts are trampled on. Rim jobs are discussed. Testicles are mangled and some actors die. But not without a serious, and cathartic, cheer-competition finale and Ben's favorite aunt smiling down from Lesbian Heaven.
