Southside Theatre Guild will present “In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should Be Shot)” by Steve Franco beginning today at 20 West Campbelltown Street in Fairburn.It is 6 p.m. and the Douglas family is busily preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high-strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-aleck teenagers, to nosy neighbors, and bickering adults – the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop and we soon wonder who is holding who hostage.Performance dates are Dec. 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
