Boise Little Theater takes you to Texas for the Verdeen family reunion in "The Red Velvet Cake War." This wacky Southern-fried comedy finds the Verdeen cousins trying to keep it together as their family implodes, sending the gossip machinery of Sweetgum into full throttle. It starts off with Aunt LaMerle "accidentally" driving her minivan through her husband's mistress' doublewide. It culminates with a high-stakes wager on who can make the best red velvet cake.
