French farce at Warren High theater

DOWNEY - The Warren High School Drama Department will present Jerome Chodrov's "Three Bags Full" from Jan. 19-23 at the Emerson Theatre on the school campus."Three Bags Full" is a French farce about a greedy merchant who finds himself snookered into being a matchmaker for two daughters, one the child of his wife and the other the maid's offspring. Rebellious young ladies, a comely new maid, pregnant ladies and mistaken identities lead to explosive hilarity. Meanwhile, a larcenous employee who has embezzled half a million dollars offers to return it for a managerial position and the daughter's hand. Half of the loot is in diamonds and half in cash, the stashes in separate but identical bags. A third identical bag contains the maid's skivvies. The Itomurua Make-Up Academy at Downey Adult School is assisting with the production. Warren's drama department routinely uses local resources "to promote businesses and schools within our city." "Three Bags Full" will be presented nightly at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 and proceeds will benefit the drama department. For reservations, visit or call (562) 869-7306, ext. 87910.
