Two feuding mountain families and a nearly 1,000-pound pig are the beginnings of the latest dinner theatre offering from West Virginia Wesleyan College’s Department of Theatre & Dance. Written and directed by Dr. Gregory Mach, associate professor, “The Case of the Sleepwalking Pig” promises lots of laughs, some mountain music and a murder-mystery to solve.

The play starts with a meeting to announce that Curly Boy, the 977 pound MacRoy family pig, has been kidnapped. The MacRoys suspect the Flatfield family and they want the pig back. The pastor tries to keep the peace as accusations and old animosities fly, stirring up the feud again.

On November 4, the dinner theatre will be produced at the Buckhannon Opera House on Main Street at 6:30 p.m. The menu includes slow-roasted pork, mashed potatoes with peppercorn gravy, homestyle green beans, American salad, artisan dinner rolls, soda, water or coffee and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Tickets are $30. Call 304-472-8369 for reservations.
