overview artists video notes learnmore

One of our most beloved contemporary plays returns with its message of compassion.  Travel back to Atlanta in 1939.  It's Christmas, Gone With the Wind is having its premiere, and war in Europe is looming ever closer, but the Freitag household is much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season.  In this Best Play Tony Award winner, playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) has created a family of eccentrics that is both funny and touching, and a warmhearted story about discrimination and acceptance, past and present.

Approximately 2 hrs. 15 min. with intermission
Age Recommendation:
Appropriate for ages 10 and older.  Toddlers and babes in arms are not permitted.
