Description

THE FLUME OF DOOM
or ONE SLIP WAS TO BE HER DOWNFALL


Written exclusively for Triangle Club by Iola Barbee
Scenes take place in the late 1890s

This year’s timely melodrama, about a drought in Julian, was
written by Iola Barbee. It is set in the late 1800s and is loosely
based upon Julian history, featuring a heroine in distress with the
handsome, indefatigable hero rescuing his beloved from the morally
reprehensible villain. Flume of Doom or One Slip Was to Be Her
Downfall is a comedy about a professing rainmaker who wanders
into Julian City with his less-than-brainy sidekick, claiming to have
the answer to the community’s waterless woes. He conspires with
two wandering gypsies who purport to be able to dance up a downpour.


Meanwhile, the townspeople are raising money for the installation
of a fl ume to carry water down the mountain into the rainthirsty
community, and have no idea that this ill-intentioned visitor
has set his sights on their proceeds—and not to help increase them.
Two aunts with a penchant for zaniness and a sheriff who is a man
of few words enhance the humor of this colorful cast and whimsical
portrayal of life, mannerisms, and period apparel in this classic
comedy melodrama.


Your participation is encouraged- boo the villain, cheer the hero,
and cry “awwww” when the sweet heroine appears. Sometimes
the characters need warning or advice—but keep it clean—it’s
a family show!


Between acts there is an “olio” (variety show) featuring local
talent with guitar and dulcimer players, singers, recitals, standup
comedy, and the famous Triangle Club
Chorus, a.k.a. Julian Floozies, as seen on Huell Howser’s California
Gold!

SEATING IS ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS.
