Tyrone causes trouble. Tyrone breaks things. Tyrone wants to hurt people, which is bad news for Jason, because Tyrone is Jason's sock puppet, and he's refusing to go away. Created as a coping mechanism for a shy and introverted teen, Tyrone now battles Jason for the body that they share, and the church's after-school activities program will never be the same. Robert Askins explodes notions of morality, family and possession of all kinds in this vicious and oddly heart-warming comedy about a boy and his right hand.

Written by Tony Award-winning playwright Peter Shaffer and directed by Gloucester Stage veteran Benny Sato Ambush, Lettice and Lovage features Academy Award nominated actress and Gloucester resident Lindsay Crouse as Lettice Douffet. A tour guide leading tours through an obscure English mansion utterly devoid of interest, Lettice decides to "Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!" her tours by fabricating fanciful stories, which ignites the wrath of her employer. The battle that ensues rapidly turns to friendship as the ladies embark on a series of escapades in this delightful comedy.
Seen by over ten million people worldwide, this wildly popular comedy keeps every audience laughing as they try to outwit the suspects and catch the killer. New clues and up to the minute improvisation deliver a different show every night.
