Seeing Stars in Dixie: A Play in Two Acts
It's 1956 and Hollywood has arrived in Natchez, Mississippi with its brightest stars to film Raintree County . Meanwhile at Clemmie's, a Natchez tea room, the widowed proprietor who has a fascination with movies and a secret admirer, oversees her own cast of characters: Tootie, her take charge friend; Jo Beth, a former beauty queen; Glease, a man more comfortable with women than macho men, and Marjorie, an unethical social climber. Competition for a small role in the movie brings out the best and worst of these memorable characters. Twists, turns and revelations lead Clemmie to trade a moment of fame for love and the chance to impact the lives of people dear to her. Originally produced at the Sonoma County Repertory Theatre in Sebastopol, CA.
