Review from johnnie.anderson

The writing was incredible. We got to see EACH character fully develop during the production. The directing was awesome and the acting was superb! There was never a lull during the entire performance. Bravo!!!

Description

Written by Marisa Wegrzyn

Directed by Richard Shavzin

Country singer Hewitt Finley has shot himself in the head and his daughter, Roby, is hitting the road, hoping to leave behind her failed music career and the boyfriend who can’t say her name. With a folding chair handcuffed to one hand and a guitar case full of stolen cash in the other, Roby hitchhikes her way home to Burkeville, Texas to save her heart-sick little sister. Roby’s twin, Dad’s mistress, and the owner of the cash all end up on the Finley porch to fight over Dad’s royalties and their hatred of the song that made him famous.
