A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. A full slate of suspects is present, and into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis.

Trevor and Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest: three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. This comedy takes place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples’ bedrooms during one endless Saturday night of codependence and dysfunction, beds, tempers and domestic order are ruffled – leading all the players to a hilariously touching epiphany.

Set to the magical strains of an Academy Award-winning score, State Fair is the kind of warm-hearted family entertainment only Rodgers & Hammerstein could deliver!
