separate beds

Flat Rock Playhouse cools off this summer with Separate Beds, a playful, romantic comedy.

This entertaining yet emotional story focuses on a decades-old marriage facing the unknown: an empty nest. Setting sail on a cruise to shake things up, two longtime spouses meet another couple who seems to have it all - romance, excitement, and spontaneity. But is the grass actually greener on the other side? Find out in this heartwarming and hilarious voyage of rediscovery.

Separate Beds guarantees an evening of love and laughter at Flat Rock Playhouse, running July 11-20. Audiences can expect a stunning cast and artistic team, bringing the characters and sitcom-esque comedy to life, including Flat Rock Playhouse favorite, Scott Treadway, who leads the charge as the play’s director.

Treadway notes that the play’s cast of characters are primed for these performances in particular. “We have stocked this comedy with four of the Playhouse's greatest comic veterans,” he said. “Should we make it out of rehearsals intact, I think we're in for a wild and crazy ride.”

Featuring a charming script by award-winning, female playwright, M.J. Cruise, Separate Beds is receiving the classic Flat Rock Playhouse production treatment as well.

Separate Beds features a cast of professional equity actors including Peter Thomason (Ernie Fraiser), Linda Edwards (Twink Frasier), Patrick Sullivan (Blake Stone), Marcy McGuigan (Beth Stone). Sullivan was last seen at Flat Rock Playhouse as Franklin Hart, the boss, in 9 to 5. Meanwhile, Thomason, Edwards, and McGuigan are longtime performers at Flat Rock Playhouse.

Separate Beds runs July 11 - 20 at Flat Rock Playhouse Leiman Mainstage.

Performances Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets for adults or children can be purchased by calling the Playhouse box office at 828-693-0731, toll-free at 866-737-8008 or online at
