Chocolate Chess Pie of Amory, The
It's August 1955 in Amory, Mississippi, a time and place where the community is planning more than just sweet potato casserole, and their Momma's fried chicken for Sunday lunch after church. With vengeance on their minds, and "Bless her heart!" on their lips, these Southern ladies have outlined plans to subtly trap those in their way to social ruin. Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's short stories, The Cask of Amontillado and Hog Frog, The Chocolate Chess Pie of Amory follows two women who have been pushed too far. Written by a recent alumna of Georgetown University, this laugh-out-loud comedy is filled with satiric wit, heart, and gospel music. It suggests all these good Southern women need for revenge is to introduce the threat of scandal and to bake a delicious chocolate chess pie.
Page-to-Stage Festival 2014. The three-day, Center-wide Page-to- Stage event offers a series of free readings and open rehearsals of plays and musicals being developed by local, regional, and national playwrights, librettists, and composers.
