Carpenter Square Theatre will celebrate St. Patrick's Day a bit early with the Oklahoma premiere of Julia Jordan's offbeat romantic comedy ST. SCARLET.

The Irish-American Cummins family puts the "fun" in dysfunctional in a story set on St. Patrickís Day. Sisters Rose and Ruby live together at the familyís lake home taking care of their ailing mother. Rose is the "wild child" who left home early and returned home as high strung as ever. Her sister Ruby is a naÔve dreamer who never left home.

At the play's start, a blizzard is swirling outside and they have called their brother Seamus to come from town to repair the heating thermostat. In no time, they are squabbling over who does the most to take care of their mother, who will get their motherís possessions, and even what music to play on the radio.

Shortly, Ruby reveals that the thermostat isnít actually broken. She has turned the heat off because their mother has passed away in her upstairs bedroom. In the midst of arguing about what arrangements to make, a stranger from Brooklyn breaks in claiming to be in love with Rose who he calls "Scarlet". He believes that she has been exchanging love letters with him for two years, and he has driven cross-country to see her. As it turns out, what Vinny believes is not true, but his visit changes all of their lives.
