    It's been more than a year since the good folks at Gaslight Dinner Theatre have mounted a production, but after some behind-the-scenes changes, they're back and just as entertaining as ever with "Ripe Conditions" , a splendidly silly story of Lester and Buster, two bickering brothers who weather the storm of a coming tornado that brings with it, the return of a girl they both once courted. In the vein of everything from "Greater Tuna" to Del Shores ' "Sordid Lives", "Ripe Conditions" pokes fun at, but never truly dismisses homespun humor anyone who's spent any length of time south of the Mason Dixon line can appreciate.
