Faith County & An Evening of Culture by Mark London Smith,–November 4-6, 10-12, 2011
Directed by Ron Johnson
A colorful set of good ol’ folk gather for the county fair, and there’s stiff competition in the arts and crafts category. There’s an inspirin’ poetry readin’ by Faye McFaye, Mildred’s ceramic depiction of The Last Supper, Ruthann’s divinity (and rum) cake, Naomi’s chic hair stylin’ and Violet’s appliqued toilet seat covers! And bein’ spring, luuuuuv is in the air! Originally produced for radio, Faith County enjoyed a thirty five week run on WLYK and national notoriety before being adapted for the stage.
Faith County II: An Evening of Culture
In this long awaited sequel to Faith County, we return to Mineola County for the community theatre’s production of Romeo and Juliet. All of the beloved group are cast in the debacle and, even though they don’t know their lines, the set isn’t finished and a dog keeps barking offstage, they’re gonna give it a go! There’s an awe inspirin’ performance by Mildred Carson who doesn’t look fifty as Juliet. And there’s great chemistry between her and Romeo Bubba Bedford from the Gas ‘N Go. Wait ’til you hear the additional dialogue provided by Naomi Farkle Carson! We see their final rehearsal and the performance in all it’s glory and abbreviated entirety.
