Our Fall Play:
Chipola by Waylon Wood
When the power goes out after a July storm in a small town in the Florida panhandle,
Wanna June Duke is determined to enjoy a languid evening under the stars by the light of the full moon.
But her son Roy Boy picks up (literally) their persnickety neighbor Miss Bailey
and deposits her in a lawn chair in the yard; her eldest daughter Dot arrives after leaving her husband;
and her younger daughter Jewel, fresh from a rendezvous at the river, has secrets to spill.
Like the river for which it is named, this play meanders, revealing a family’s history and the skeletons
in their closets that could finally tear them apart.
Starring: Andrew Kaempfer* as Major General Henry Knox, Chloe Rose as Mrs. Lucy Knox, James Knight* as Major General Nathanael Greene, Jenny Strassburg* as Mrs. Catherine Greene and Gregory Jones as General George Washington. Featuring: Robbie Baum, Tommy Nelms, Tom O'Neill and Jason Gray.

A fresh and powerful voice in the American theatre landscape
In Gray Matters, we find acclaimed actress Sarah Gray in a predicament familiar to many Americans. After an emergency hospitalization, she finds herself with no insurance, no job and no prospects. Worse, she has a faulty memory. Surrounded by a well-meaning but tough agent and two self-centered young upstarts, Sarah must discover if it is possible for an actor with an Etch-a-Sketch for a brain to get back to what matters.
