Cirrius Nebraska (2008)

The Minden Community Players performed “Cirrius, Nebraska” for the 2008 NACT festival held in North Platte.

The town of Cirrius is so small that the mayor is also the judge and the postmaster. But the secret the townspeople hold is no small one, as a New York businessman discovers on a trip to the Brigadoon-like town. After a few meals with the locals at the bed and breakfast, the stranger soon finds that while warm and kind, nobody can take a joke. Through a string of comically awkward interactions with the tight-lipped townsfolk, the secret behind the serious mood comes out… it is against the law to laugh. When Rose, the local school teacher, tells the stranger about the fateful day the bizarre law went into effect, he begins to understand. And in sharing their secret with a stranger, a glimmer of hope for change creeps through the gray clouds that have been hanging over Cirrius for years.
