Funny Money opens April 28th



Betty, Vic, and Henry argue about who's going to the airport, as Bill the cabbie patiently waits
A “found” briefcase full of money, one-way tickets to Barcelona, a drunk wife, a corrupt cop, and a cab driver who just wants to take someone to the airport….oh yeah, and Mr. Big, the briefcase’s real owner who wants it back. You’ll find all that, and more hilarity in TAPA’s upcoming spring comedy, “Funny Money”.  Sponsored by Cyndi Lewis of Rob Trost Real Estate, written by Ray Cooney, and directed by Becki Wilhelm, this madcap comedy opens April 28th and runs through May 13th.
Henry sits on Betty, while Jean sits on the floor, and they are all hearing out Det. Davenport
Henry Perkins, a mild-mannered C.P.A., accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase: one full of money. Henry assumes it is illicit cash, and decides to keep it. Knowing that the former owner must have his briefcase, he rushes home to book one-way fares to Barcelona. He tells his confused wife
