2nd ACT Community Theater Production: In Love Thy Neighbor (a comedy written by Gary Ray Stapp) homeowner Leona Crump armed with a sharply judgmental attitude and a pair of binoculars, is consumed with anxiety over her new neighbors. Will they be beatniks? Or paroled drug pushers? Or more frightening yet, perhaps someone with children?! Her worst fears are realized when an odd-ball “hill-folk” family move in across the street. She quickly realizes that neither God, nor her favorite telephone psychic, has prepared her for the series of showdowns set to take place in her living room as she attempts to purge her cul-de-sac.
