A charming set of one-act plays. In Graceland, two ardent Presley fans, Bev and Rootie, are camped out before the gates, each determined to be the first to enter the sacred precincts. Asleep on the Wind takes place ten years prior in the Louisiana Bayou, where we learn about a family event that served as a catalyst for Rootie’s life path.
$25 all performances.
