Adjusting to married life can sometimes be a trying time for a young bride. For newlywed Ashley Wagner, however, marriage turns out to be an out of this world experience! For starters, the antique cuckoo clock, a family heirloom, that Ashley’s Bavarian busybody of an Aunt-in-law gave Ashley’s husband, Greg, as a wedding gift has, well…an unusual defect. The time piece has a wormhole which, when Greg turns back the clock to Standard time, opens a time warp that catapults Ashley back in time only to find herself pregnant and married to Greg’s father, Klaus! Ach du lieber! Is Ashley then…Greg’s mother? Expecting a baby and stuck in a time warp with a broken cuckoo clock and a different husband, Ashley comes to realize that her life is…well…A Crock of Schnitzel! A Crock of Schnitzel is a comedy for everyone who, at one time or another, has overindulged in a cornucopia of culinary decadence resulting in both night terrors and a whopper of a belly ache. Forget your antacids! Feast on fun! Enjoy every morsel of A Crock of Schnitzel! A German lesson in every bite!
"Very few people have the creativity, imagination and determination to write a play, especially with the subject matter being something as intangible as daylight savings time and the twice a year changing of the hands on clocks everwhere. One such person is Barbara Weber." - Montgomery Newspapers
"Barbara Pease Weber has cooked up another decadent new comedy." - Delco Times
"It's like Back to the Future with a side of Jerry Springer. Heavy!" - Philadelphia City Paper
A Crock of Schnitzel was featured in August 2010 in the McLaren Comedy Festival in Midland, Texas.
