WINNER OF DEZART PERFORMS' PREMIER FESTIVAL OF NEW PLAYS, THIS AWARD-WINNING DRAMA BY LARRY PARR MAKES ITS WEST COAST PREMIERE.|
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings was riding high on her success as an author, having won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel, "The Yearling," and having won many honorary degrees. With the publication of her nonfiction book, "Cross Creek," about her friends and neighbors in the little Florida community of that name, her life was about to change. Her friend and neighbor, Zelma Cason, sued her for invasion of privacy. The ensuing lawsuit that played out in l946 in backwoods Florida was alternately hilarious and profound, as it pitted the right to privacy against the constitutional promise of free speech.
