Anatomy of Gray
By Jim Leonard, Jr.
Directed by Josh Blann
October 14 – 18, 2015
The award-winning author of The Diviners, And They Dance Real Slow in Jackson, and Crow and Weasel describes his newest play as "a children's story for adults." When June's father dies, she prays for a healer to come to the small town of Gray, so that no one will ever suffer again; the next thing she knows, there's a tornado, and a man in a balloon blows into town claiming to be a doctor. At first, the new doctor cures anything and everything, but soon the town's preacher takes ill with a mysterious plague. And then the plague begins to spread. Set in Indiana during the late 1800's, this moving and often funny play deals with death, loss, love, and healing in a unique coming of age story.
Appropriate for all audiences.
Lone Star & Laundry and Bourbon
By James McLure
Directed by J. Brent Alford
December 2 – 6, 2015
A comic double-bill by James McClure, these irreverent Texas plays give a side-splitting snapshot of life in Maynard, Texas in 1974. These tales of husbands, wives, war, love and honor are both hysterically funny and surprisingly relevant.
Strong language and adult content.
A Year With Frog and Toad
A Musical for Children by Robert & Willie Reale
Directed by J. Brent Alford
Two public performances only!
Friday, March 4, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
Saturday, March 5, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
A Year with Frog and Toad is the Tony-nominated musical based on Arnold Lobel’s beloved Frog and Toad books. Lobel’s well-loved animal characters jump from the page to the stage in this whimsical musical that follows two best friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four, fun-filled seasons. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.
A drama by Romulus Linney
April 27 – May 1, 2016
Seeking to retrieve his runaway wife (and the possessions she has taken with her), Coleman Shedman arrives at the rural meeting house of a southern Pentecostal sect with a lawyer in tow. But his wife, Nancy, is unwilling to forsake the love and protection of her new "husband," the Reverend Obediah Buckhorn, and return to the brutal, hard-drinking Coleman. And when the strapping Reverend Buckhorn himself arrives, it is quickly evident that Coleman will not be able to take her back by force. Rich with atmosphere and the feel of southern rural life, the play blends humor and poignancy as it probes into the circumstances and stories of the faithful church members and those not quite faithful.
