A Pulitzer-nominated script! It was a simpler time in the late 1940’s, especially in south Georgia and specifically in a sleepy little town, Second Samuel! What had been called the Great Depression was quickly fading into memory. The war had been won, the election was over, and “Give ‘em Hell Harry” was still president. It has been an exciting time for sure, but the folks in Second Samuel were ready for things to settle down and return to normal. Except this was the summer that Miss Gertrude passed away, and deep, dark secrets were about to be revealed. In the comedy-drama, nobody could have imagined how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down, leaving everybody in Second Samuel wondering if anything would ever be normal again!

All ages welcome! No preparation necessary. Readings will be taken from the script.
