When a young producer stumbles into town looking for stories and a fresh start, he believes he's found both in Ruth. Her made-for-TV tale captures his attention - a broke young woman in a rural Kentucky town, unable to access the trust fund set up for her children after her husband's murder. But neither of them has told the other the whole truth, and a past tainted by racism threatens to destroy Ruth's already shaky existence. This story is interspersed with memorable monologues from fans and critics of The Dukes of Hazzard, who blow apart the Southern stereotypes that tend to define Ruth's world.
We're opening doors this year by kicking off a new professional's production which will be performed and designed by recent college graduates giving them a professional credit and the chance to be seen by the greater community. We are pleased to continue our long tradition of launching new theatrical careers with this program exclusively dedicated to that purpose.
Honorary Producers: Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Arts Education Fund

*Due to an injury, the role of Blake, originally played by Jihad (Jay) Milhem, will now be played by Will Thompson. Our thoughts and support go out to Jay during his recovery.
