Now through September 1, Kechi Playhouse presents Not Now Darling. The play is set in the exclusive London fur salon of Bodley, Bodley, and Crouch, where Crouch struggles to keep things above board while his partner, Mr. Bodley, tries to secure the affections of a would-be mistress by “selling” her husband an expensive mink coat for a fraction of its real worth.
