The Grass Harp; Plus moving scenes from other great plays!
PERFORMANCES: August 8 - 10, 15 - 17 by the On-Impulse Acting Troupe
GUEST DIRECTOR: Emmy-Nominated Producer/Director Pamela Peak
Based on Truman Capote's bittersweet memoir, The Grass Harp is a treasure - a beautiful coming-of-age story told by Colin Fenwick, a young boy who is forced to live with his two aunts, Verena and Dolly Talbo, after the death of his parents. His aunt Verena (a cold aggressive businesswoman) causes a revolt in her household . . . that ends up dividing the entire town. Verena claims there is "money to be made" so she tries to force her sister Dolly (a sweet-natured spinster) and their gutsy black kitchen maid Catherine to give up Dolly's secret recipe that cures illness, so Verena can market that recipe.
