“27 Wagons Full of Cotton” follows the story of a cotton gin owner, Jake Meighan (Andy Blumenthal), and his young wife, Flora (Peyton Cimino). When there is a fire in the neighbouring plantation, suspicion falls on Jake and the plantation superintendent, Silva Vicarro (Gareth Lewis), comes looking for his own special brand of vengeance…
“For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls” (or The Further Adventures of Amanda and her Children) is Christopher Durang’s affectionate parody of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie and features the dysfunctional Wingvalley family. Meet Amanda, a fading southern belle, and her two sons – Lawrence, a stay-at-home hypochondriac, and Tom, who escapes to the movies as much as he can. And then there is Ginny – a feminine caller paying a visit to the Wingvalley household. Amanda tries to face everything with charm and vivacity but sometimes she just wants to hit somebody.
