“Foxfire” tells the story of Annie Nations, the matriarch of a family that has lived on their land in north Georgia for three generations.
It is 1983 and Annie’s husband Hector has been dead for five years leaving her to carry on with the back-breaking chores by herself.
Her son Dillard, a moderately successful country singer, is back home and determined to take Annie to live with him in the modern world of running water and electricity.
A real estate developer and a local girl have some input into Annie’s decision to leave the land, as does Hector, who only appears to Annie.
“The production is a heart-warming story of places and times dear to the heart,” said Leslie McCrary StageWorks, Inc. co-founder.
“It is a strong, poignant story that will perhaps remind people of their own family members who have had to make similar decisions when their lives are changed by the loss of a loved one,” McCrary said.
Cast members are Teresa Harris, Ron Connell, Will Brooks, Kara Duke, John Walker and Bob Wright.
“We have a terrific cast who tell this story with a lot of heart and soul and hope more people will come see the play,” McCrary said.
McCrary said the production is suitable for audiences 13 and up.
Show dates are Jan. 18, 19, 25 and 26. Show times are at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for and $10 for pre-paid groups of 10 or more.
McCrary said there is a lesson to be learned from “Foxfire.”
“It is difficult losing family members and changing a way of life you are familiar with, but things do go on and we are all part of the flow of life no matter where it takes us,” McCrary said.
