Bubba

by Sam Havens

September 13 - October 12, 2024 Fridays & Saturdays @ 8:00pm
Sundays Sep 29 & Oct 6 @ 2:00pm

This play is about the fun a man and his wife can have when they are good buddies, when they can pal around together outdoors, when she is the Huckleberry Finn to his Tom Sawyer. No - that statemetn needs re-phrasing: What fun the man can have when he and his wife are good buddies, etc, etc. Sarah Jan Tanner grew up in the Piney Woods of Texas. City boy, Glen Dorsett, married her and took her back to New York. But somehow she became more and more the good buddy and less and less the wife - and somewhere along the lines picks up the nickname of Bubba. Only when Glen (now a successful photographer) decides that they are going to move back to the Piney Woods does she fully realize that their marriage has been his marriage. An egotistical male model and his capricious but beautiful paramour are the catalysts that accelerate Bubba's desire to rebel against the kid brother image and be a woman again.

Director Judy Reeves is seeking cast members to fill 4 roles.
