UGA alumna Catherine Trieschmann penned this paean to smalltown Georgia life and its people, who will be familiar to you if you grew up anywhere near such a town. “But,” according to director Geoffrey Douglas, “they’re not caricatures of Southern stereotypes. The goal of the playwright isn’t to lampoon.” Fifteen-year-old Jenny and her friend Tara decide to skip church one hot Georgia Sunday, and what ensues, told from differing points of view, is, in the words of the director, “poignant, familiar, dark and thought-provoking.” Trieschmann’s plays have been widely produced.
