4GIVENESS: In a Family Way
Four new short plays written by Susan Jackson
A good ol' Southern soap opera, where everyone is related by blood or marriage, where dogs rule, the Sonic Drive-In is the place to be----and where forgiveness can be found.
ROCKETS RED GLARE (Parts One and Two):
Southern gothic meets healthy cuisine as Nandy (Diana Brown), Peaches (Susan Jackson), Crazy Lacy (Adrienne Krug) and Salacious P. (Eric Nelson) negotiate the course of love at the Sonic Drive-In, with red trucks, tofu, and How to Become a Lord and Lady over the internet.
Part one directed by Stephen Drewes, Part two directed by Susan Jackson
1864, General Sherman is burning down the South, and Posey (Margo Sims)--the slave of Dr. John Camaan (Eric Nelson)-- offers to fight off "the devil hisself" to help her master. What she doesn't know is that things have changed in the South, and nobody bothered to tell her. Jump to 1929: Posey confesses the truth, just as Wall Street crumbles.
Directed by Susan Jackson
FOR I AM NOT BREAKING (Part One):
Two Southern matrons (Susan Jackson and Adrienne Krug), with opposing political views, share their weekly coffee; they discover one of them has been withholding information that just might end their lifelong friendship.
Directed by Ann Thomas
FOR I AM NOT BREAKING (Part Two):
Marion Peallin (Susan Jackson) receives a phone call where she can finally speak her mind and her heart to her adulterous husband. (Mrs. Peallin was considered too controversial in the 2009 SF FRINGE.)
Directed by Stephen Drewes
(Diana Brown, Adrienne Krug, Susan Jackson) Revenge might be behind Jenny's serendipitous visit to a Diner; but who will be the victim of her anger; the waitress, the vegan, or the ex?
Directed by Ann Thomas
