And the Rain Came to Mayfield
A poetic family drama, this play takes place in a small gas station/luncheonette on a Mississippi highway in 1962. The owner's son Carl dreams of going to college but his alcoholic father does not support these aspirations and his mother referees a desperate tug-of-war between the two of them. One afternoon, a young black man appears in the doorway seeking shelter while he waits for the bus to Jackson. On this Mississippi Day, the two men discover that they share a need to establish their independence and follow their dreams. Carl's father reacts violently when he finds the black man in his establishment, but Carl stands up to his father for the first time in his life.
