comedy, 80 min.

Alabama/Tennessee state line in the mid-1960s, right when the draft was reinstated for the Vietnam War. Dennis Massey, a self-appointed multi-tasker and cultural maven, introduces us to characters as diverse as a flamboyant draft dodger to a belligerent (though hapless) Klansman. Act One culminates in a disastrous (and fiery) wedding. In Act Two the townsmen are swept up in preparations for a backwoods production of Puccini's “Turandot” which despite kind words from a visiting national celebrity can only be seen as an operatic fiasco al fresco. Playwrights: Byron Loyd and Susan Morse. Director: Mark Finley. Sound Design: Morry Campbell. Recommended for: all audiences.
