In modern-day Virginia, "hardcore" re-enactors crash-diet to achieve the hollow-eyed look of starved Confederate soldiers. In Kentucky, Ku Klux Klan members still call for race war. The Civil War, it seems, might not be over yet -- this is what Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent Tony Horwitz discovered when he spent two years exploring the old Confederacy. An adaptation of his memoir by the same name, Confederates in the Attic features a cast of 14 actors playing more than 100 characters to bring to life an incredible picture of these lesser-known Southern nooks and crannies.

This was a very inventive and entertaining play. A group of misfits live in Harry's Halfway House, which isn't really a halfway house, but sort of a boarding house that operates under the radar of municipal regulations. Each resident has a secret and all have their own reasons for staying there. When a social worker starts snooping around, the residents must band together, or lose their home. Along the way, they all gain a better understanding of one another and learn to tolerate each other's foibles. There are plenty of laughs and the performances are comically energetic. Certainly worth the Goldstar ticket price!
