In this darkly comedic southern play, “after a tornado barrels through town leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When a prominent photographer visits to take pictures of June's scars, both are forced to reconcile the pain of loss and recovery.” The all-female cast “explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it.” audreycefaly.com

John Proctor Is The Villain

by Kimberly Belflower
DeWitt Studio Theatre

In this comedy drama, “A high school class explores the seminal American classic, The Crucible. As scandal swirls in their community and old heroes are unmasked, the English assignment becomes uncomfortably relevant for the students. The line between witch and heroine blurs in this post-Me Too examination of power, love, and sex education.” newplayexchange.org
