The Cheaters Club by Derek Ahonen

The Cheaters Club

Written and Directed by Derek Ahonen

Aug. 17 – Sept. 21, 2013
Abrons Arts Center

Siblings Tommy, Jimmy and Cathy, along with brand-new recruit Vonn, are the Cheaters Club. Once a year, the gang gets out of town to get it on, with no spouses or strings attached, to exorcise their sexual demons. This year’s destination is the haunted Chaney Inn in Savannah, run by a mysterious family and their voodoo-ing housemaid. The dark and unresolved history of the inn is still being written, and The Cheaters Club may very well be the final chapter.

“A manically crossbreeding sex comedy, ghost story, and southern gothic family saga.”

“The Cheaters Club is a legitimately scary ghost story which will make you laugh out loud a lot. A very difficult thing to pull off and The Amoralists do it flawlessly. Ahonen goes beyond by not only giving us a good time but also a theme to think about. Supremely Acted.”

“Mr. Ahonen has proved himself a playwright who can transform the delicious cheese of late night movies into an original and endlessly watchable artistic voice.”


“The Cheaters Club keeps their audience on their toes. It’s just so chock full of magic, mayhem, and surprises it’s impossible not to be entertained.”
