'An Absolute Turkey' Fall Play by South County High School
'An Absolute Turkey': This French bedroom farce, written by Georges Feydeau and translated by Nicki Frie and Peter Hall, is sure to tempt show goers’ comedic palates. Whether looking for a fun date night, girls’ night out, or just some comic relief before the holiday frenzy begins, this show is for you.
The play is about a faithful wife, Lucienne Vatelin, who declares she will never cheat on her husband unless she finds he has first strayed. A friend of her husband, Edmond Pontagnac, claims he can prove that her husband, Crepin Vatelin, is planning a rendezvous that very evening in a local hotel. He sets out to prove the infidelity, hoping Lucienne will choose him when she is ready to avenge her husband’s deceit. In the second Act, three couples have accidentally been booked into the same hotel room, all with plenty to hide. The play spins out of control as everything that can go wrong does. Recommended for ages 13 and over.
The show runs November 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m., and November 10 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. General admission at the door is $10, and $8 for senior citizens and students. Discounted tickets can be purchased in advance at www.southcountytheatre.org.

More About South County Secondary School
South County Secondary School (SCSS), home of the Stallions, is the only secondary school in the Lorton area and also the newest, having been built in 2005.
The school is part of the Fairfax County Public School system and is located in Cluster 5.
SCSS is a combined secondary school, meaning it educates students in grades 7 and 8 (between 800 and 900 students) and grades 9 through 12 (between 2000 and 2100 students).
SCSS is both a large school and a diverse school as four different ethnicities each comprise at least 10% of the school population.
Such a dynamic enrollment demands a full of range of choices be made available both in and out of the classroom. SCSS more than fills this demand with more than 20 varsity sports, 20 Advanced Placement classes and more than 50 clubs.
In grades 7 - 12, there are approximatelty 200 teachers and the adminstrative team -- which includes six subschool principals -- is led by Principal Jane Lipp and Associate Principal Rob Sanders.
Test scores at South County have been outstanding since opening its doors, well above state averages and easily meeting state goals.
The school slogain is "Excellenta in omni conatu," which translates to "excellence in all endeavors." The school colors are green and blue.
