....Lubbock Community Theatre: "Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will?" - As a dysfunctional family gathers to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a disabling stroke, cat fights and rumors swirl around who will get what when the will is read.

Written by Del Shores and directed by Jay C. Brown. Rated PG-13. Tickets can be reserved by calling (806) 749-2416.
