An all-female darkly comic southern drama about women on the verge, art, and the power of human connection. After a tornado barrels through a North Alabama town leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her wisecracking pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When Alice, a prominent photographer, arrives to take pictures of June’s scars, every living soul on the farm is tipped to the breaking point in this epic tale of life after death.

“Sometimes a piece just glues you to your chair, makes you laugh, rips your heart out, and when it’s done you want to hold the people you love tightly and not let go.”  — TONY CASELLI, WILLIAMSTON THEATRE

“It’s deeply moving and raw, with a four member cast that slowly reels us into this unexpectedly sensitive and captivating story.” SN&R
