Three middle-aged men, inseparable as adolescents, reunite beneath a magical “catfish moon” in an attempt to recapture the friendship of their youth in this Onstage Theatre production at the Martinez Campbell Theatre. The comedy, written by Mississippian Laddy Sartin, is helmed by Artistic Director Helen Means.


“While fishing from a favorite boyhood pier, the weight of adulthood is lifted by these characters’ love of the sport,” said Means. “With everything going on in the world right now, this play really allows us to focus on the present. What better way to enjoy life than to spend time with friends and family?
