The Country Girl at Redtwist Theatre cancelled
Popularized by the film starring Grace Kelly, we see that the life of an actor's wife is not as glamorous as you may imagine! Frank, an actor whose long periods of idleness are punctuated by despair and drink, is offered a major role in a new Broadway play. Frank is immediately all in, but only his wife knows the struggle it will be to boost his morale at every turn. The “country girl” will once again have to prove herself for what she is—a faithful, forgiving woman whose long years of devotion have almost obliterated her own personality. This country girl must choose between her devotion and desires of her own.
The cast and crew features Jacqueline Grandt, Brian Parry, Mark Pracht, Darren Jones, Sonia Goldberg, Miles Borchard and Alexis DawTyne. Directed by Steve Scott.
