Send Me No Flowers
The Southwest Iowa Theater Group is performing "Send Me No Flowers" at the Park Playhouse in Shenandoah next month.
The play is about a hypochondriac, George Kimball. Playing the role of George Kimball is Nick Johansen who says Kimball overhears his doctor talking about a dying patient and thinks it's him and that he only has 2 weeks to live.
