Show Synopsis

A wonderful comedy featuring a social-climbing sister who tries to keep her visiting country sister from embarrassing her among her new society friends. Meet Millicent and Coreen – two girls who grew up in Bullfrog Waller. Millicent is now a big-city snob. Her sister, Coreen, on the other hand, chose to stay in the country…until now! How can Millicent keep her embarrassing past a secret when Coreen, as country as cornbread and grits, shows up spouting her backwoods sentiments to everyone at Millicent's party? Frantic, Millicent decides to pass Coreen off as an actor, who never breaks character during her latest role in a play. But why would Coreen leave Bullfrog Waller after all these years? Deceit and conceit reveal not just secrets, but what matters most in life. Audiences enjoy the comedy and can’t help but catch Coreen’s positive outlook on life.
