And They Dance Real Slow in Jackson
by Jim Leonard, Jr.
February 19-22, 2014
Set in rural Indiana, the play tells the moving and chilling story of a young polio victim’s struggles to find her place amidst the small-mindedness and unfeeling callousness of her fellow townspeople. And They Dance Real Slow In Jackson becomes a moving and poetically evocative plea for understanding and compassion in a world where prejudice and casual cruelty are too often the norm.
The Curious Savage
By John Patrick
May 1-3, 2014
Mrs. Savage has been committed to a "sanatorium" by her stepchildren with the hope that she will “come to her senses" regarding the $10 million her late husband has left her. She wants to establish a fund to help others fulfill their hopes and dreams, and her fellow misfit residents seem to inspire her with the last bit of motivation she needs. But can she succeed in her pursuit of selflessness in a selfish world?
