From Samuel French:
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.
"A warm, funny play...hilarious, heart-warming, sassy Southern comedy...a standing ovation." -
"Offers jolly good fun...tightly crafted dialogue delivers a chuckle a minute." - Starkville Daily
Originally produced at the Sonoma County Repertory Theatre in Sebastopol, California.
