About This Show

Peter and his wife Christine have invited their neighbors over for an important meeting. She’s become deeply concerned that crime is on the rise in their quiet suburban neighborhood- not that there’s any evidence of it. No matter. She’s determined to convince her neighbors and her husband (who’s surprised by her sudden affinity for body building and guns) to form a Neighborhood Watch group.

Visiting them for a presentation by a handsome, no-nonsense young police officer , Bryce Melton, are: a gay couple, Adam and Tony; Mary Helen and Patrick, a well-to-do couple, who are accompanied by Justine, their sweet-faced, live-in babysitter; Trina, pregnant with twins, whose husband Carl is all too ready to don camouflage fatigues and take Christine’s concerns to an even higher level of paranoia.

Eventually, this unlikely band of vigilantes takes to the streets, and in the course of an increasingly frenzied and wickedly comic evening, nothing goes as planned. Crimes are indeed uncovered, arrests are made, shots are fired, secrets are revealed, and conventional ideas about love, marriage, fidelity and friendship are deeply shaken.

Part farce and part romantic comedy, Scaredycats is a razor-sharp satire of contemporary suburban life and attitudes. It has its World Premiere at Fremont Centre Theatre.
