THIS SIDE OF THE DIRT
3 Weekends Only in June 2016!
"This Side of the Dirt" is a South Texas family drama steeped in satire and humor.
The story takes place days after the death of the family patriarch, Papo. We find his daughter, Jean Ann, alone and weeping as she comes to terms with her loss. As each new character enters her home the layers of her pain and paranoia unfold.
In an effort to curb her insecurities Jean Ann only intensifies them by creating more drama around her. As her paranoia builds -- putting her marriage and friendship on the line -- she enters a downward spiral believing the small talk over the people she loves most. It isn't until the spirit of Papo returns that she re-anchors herself and is able to pull back in everything she thought she'd lost.
With Jonna Juul Hansen as Jean Ann, Beth Shea as Sally, Mark Hernandez as Juan, Wray Crawford as Jimmy, Jennifer Caplan as Jenny and Jae McCain as Anthony, "This Side of the Dirt" is full of wild characters and big ideas about life, love and friendship. It is a charming snapshot of a lovely yet dysfunctional ranching family guided by the sure-footed and unassuming, Juan, who must keep everyone in balance to ensure their sanity.
