I would see this play again. The acting was excellent and so was the story. I loved it.

A great new show -- solid writing, stellar acting, and all-around high production value. The subject matter gets a bit intense at times, but just know that going in. DEFINITELY worth seeing!

Another quality production from Mutineer Theatre Co.
Drama (with sparse comedy) about human pain, fear and status wanting love and acceptance - with surprises. Great casting, well acted. High production standards!

Description

“Believin’ ain’t hard when believin’s all ya’ got.”

It’s Jimmy’s last day before going to war, he’s addicted to glue, his mom is seeing visions in the sweet potato casserole, and his wheelchair-bound dad can kick his ass. Battered by his father’s impossible expectations, his mother’s delusional addiction, and the sweltering heat of the Arkansas summer, Jimmy turns to the only friend he has and pleads for help. God answers him with the rare and elusive ivory-billed woodpecker.

Lured by aspirations of heroism and driven by his father’s insistence that he’s nothing more than a freak, Jimmy embarks beyond his family’s trailer park on an embattled exploration of faith and freedom. Trapped in a land where the line between right and wrong is easily blurred, Jimmy must decide for himself if he has what it takes to be a hero.
