Morehead Theatre Guild Presents, “The Sugar Bean Sisters”
July 16 @ 7:30 pm
In this Southern Gothic comedy of romance, murder and alien abduction, the Nettle sisters are determined to escape spinsterhood – Willie Mae by going to Salt Lake to find a good Mormon husband, and Faye by hopping on the spaceship when the “space people” return for another visit. We meet Willie Mae and Faye in the evening as they return home to their ramshackle swamp dwelling in Sugar Bean, Florida, after a disastrous daytrip. A disturbance in the sugarcane field lures the sisters back outside, where a strange, bird-like woman suddenly appears out of the darkness of Buster Swamp, setting in motion a chain of mysterious events. Lies begin to unravel and truths are finally revealed.
