Pistols & Posies by Christy Fredrickson

Please join us for this lighthearted, family-friendly comedy set during Prohibition, in 1920's Chicago. Everything’s coming up roses for gangster Primo Malvone, or so his wife Isabella thinks. She is under the impression that Primo finally got out of the “gangster racket” to become a florist! But his secret is starting to unfold and things start spiraling out of control just as Isabella's brother a famous opera singer comes to town. Primo's accountant has disappeared with $50,000, rival mob boss Mama Mia wants a meeting, an important businessman Rico Linguini is in town looking for a new supplier and Isabella decides to throw a party. Making things even worse for Primo, Isabella then invites Mama Mia and her thugs to the party, and the conniving Mama Mia turns around and invites the cops! Meanwhile, Primo's three daughters and the missing accountant hatch a plot to make Primo get out of “the racket business” and go straight, once and for all. This is a fun-filled cast of colorful characters, slapstick comedy and a surprise ending that everyone will love!
