One Slight Hitch 

It's the last weekend to see Lewis Black's play at the Totem Pole Playhouse, 9555 Golf Course Lane, which focuses on the Coleman family on the eve of their eldest daughter's wedding. The doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose when the daughter’s long-time ex-boyfriend, Ryan, shows up at the front door apparently unaware of the day’s significance and will not go away as the sometimes zany, sometimes heartfelt events unfold. To purchase tickets, call 717-352-2164 or 1-888-805-7056 or go online at
