‘Spreading It Around’ – A Comical Plan to ‘Spend It Now’


This sensational comedy was written by Londos D’Arrigo, who is known for the hard-hitting comedy he wrote for comedians like Phyllis Diller, Lily Tomlin, and Joan Rivers. 

The play is about a widow, Angie Drayton (Bonnie Knapp), who lives in an upscale, gated retirement community in Florida. When she grows sick and tired of handing out money to her unappreciative, shopaholic children (Alex Costello and Rhonda Davis), she creates a plan with support from Martin Wheeler (Andrew Ciliberto), her friend and neighbor for “spending it now” and sets up the S.I.N. Foundation. Christi Lueck-Sadiq plays Dr. Krapinsky, a psychiatrist, who adds another interesting twist and a surprise ending which will leave you in stitches. Directed by Victoria Diebler, she is making her directing debut and says she sees this play as a love letter to Florida, particularly Southwest Florida.    

“Spreading It Around,” produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. is on stage February 6 – 24 at The Marco Players Theater, Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd.  Shows are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.
