    SlowgirlSLOWGIRL by Greg Pierce

    Production dates:  Feb 26-Mar 13, 2016

    Sterling, a former lawyer turned recluse in the Costa Rican jungle, is surprised by the arrival of his 17-year-old niece, Becky, whom he barely knows.  She is a talkative high-schooler whose parents sent her out of town for a week of obscurity in the wilderness. Unaccustomed to having constant company, Sterling slowly acquires a sense of Becky’s situation, which is disconcertingly similar to his own retreat from the opinions of others, and both realize their own remorse over moral negligences.

    The Trip To Bountiful by Horton Foote

    Carrie Watts wants to go home. She has been living with her son and daughter-in-law in a small flat in Houston. She is concerned that she is in the way and she is longing to return to her childhood home of Bountiful. With each government check she receives she makes an attempt to go home. She is thwarted each time. Her son is afraid for her safety; her daughter-in-law is afraid she’ll lose the money. Carrie is afraid she may lose herself if she doesn’t get back to Bountiful.
