"UFF 'DA" A SCREWBALL COMEDY ABOUT RED HAT LADIES, NAUGHTY NUNS AND MARIE OSMOND!

Genre: Comedy
Written & Directed by Jack Dyville**

F.A.C.T. Friends Always Creating Theatre present two full length plays for their

May Page 2 Stage Series including "UFF 'DA" a screwball comedy,

"UFF 'DA"

What happens when five yellow school buses filled with Red Hat ladies from the South Central Evangelical Lutheran Ladies Conference of Western North Dakota travel across the Rough Rider State to Fargo to see "The Sound of Music" starring Marie Osmond, but are greeted instead by a marquee announcing the 4th National Bus & Truck company performing in an adult-themed, 'Bedroom Bedlam'?  It's non-stop hilarity from there as three of the ring-leaders of the group demand that the Theatre Company give them the show they paid to see!  But, there's NO Marie Osmond or Sound of Music. "Uff'da!"

 

There was a time when ‘Grease’ was the word, but now; you most likely will be hearing and repeating the words, Uff ‘da! I know many of you are saying, WHAT DOES IT MEAN? What Could A PLAY called “Uff ‘da” possibly be about?

Though this word and expression does not appear in Webster’s Dictionary and could easily be lost from our vocabularies for good; thankfully Wikipedia does recognize, support and helps keep this worthwhile expression alive – Uff ‘da is often used as a term for sensory overload. It can be used as an expression of surprise, astonishment, exhaustion, relief and sometimes dismay. For many, Uff ‘da is an all-purpose expression with a variety of nuances, and covering a variety of situations. The expression has lost its original connotation, and it is increasingly difficult to specify what it means now in America. Within Midwestern culture, it frequently translates into: I am overwhelmed. It has become a mark of Scandinavian roots, particularly for people from North Dakota, South Dakota,Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota. Uff ‘da can often be used as an alternative for many common day swear words.
