Dawn Hanover, a professional woman from Los Angeles, returns home to her Kentucky roots to claim her birthright. When the folks on the Hanover farm hear their long-lost big-city half-sister – "that other woman's child" – is coming to Kentucky to claim her share of the farm, all hell breaks loose. They have dreaded this moment for years, and they "ain't gonna" let no city woman take what is rightfully theirs. Little do they know, that Dawn is actually coming to connect with her unknown family. THAT OTHER WOMAN'S CHILD is a joyful, bluegrass-laced look at the trials and tribulations of the ties that bind.
THAT OTHER WOMAN'S CHILD was written by Sherry Landrum and George S. Clinton. Sherry is the recipient of two Los Angeles Drama Critic's awards for her directing and has been awarded a Gold Record.
