What could go wrong when “Mama Won’t Fly”? Well, for starters, Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt has four days to drive her mother from Alabama to California for her brother’s wedding. Add the bride-to-be into the mix and it’s the trio’s ultimate road trip with the theft of their car and all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked 18-wheeler and a detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl minister. The Chapin Theatre Company production runs tonight through Sunday and Thursday through June 23 at the Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College, 7300 College St., Irmo; showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays.
