Nickers in a Twist takes place in your typical old west Texas town. Twenty years ago, a bank robbery went afoul that resulted in a long stretch in the hoosegow for Brigand Chiseler. Today he is being released. However, Sheriff Drab Nickers, his lovely wife, Lacie, and their charming daughter, Frillie, are soon to find themselves in a series of unexpected “twists” and tumultuous turns of events as rehabilitation, it would seem, has not had the desired effect upon our convicted criminal. Simply put… melodramas are a hoot, and this one draws upon all the classic components of this traditional theatrical style to elicit audience responses that cover the breadth of cheering on the hero, empathizing with the heroine and – naturally – booing the villain.
