The Debutante Ball
This stunning comic drama, set in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, begins the morning of Teddy Parker’s debutante ball, that archetypal phenomenon in Southern culture known as a maiden’s "coming out." Teddy’s mother, the beautiful and formidable Jen Parker Turner, has willed this event into being. Ostracized from polite society ever since she was accused and--under much speculation and gossip--acquitted of the murder of her wealthy husband, Jen has been looking to Teddy’s coming-out gala to revive her and her family’s reputation. As the play unfolds, various secrets emerge: an unwanted pregnancy, an illicit romance, self-mutilation, mendacity and murder. Polite facades crumble and ugly truths twist and polka across the ballroom floor. This is a play about the price of secrets and the power that love and lovelessness hold over our lives.
