Performance Dates: May 3 – 14, 2016 at The Motel Theatre, Arts Commons.

Rehearsal Dates: March and April, TBA

Play Outline and Character Breakdown: When Jesse, a feisty no-nonsense senior, receives a legacy from a soldier she danced  with 50 years before, she is not as delighted as you might think. In fact, she’s a bit creeped out about it. She can scarcely remember the guy and feels she’s being manipulated by him from the grave. 

1943: 

  • Young Jesse: a smart young woman of 18, lippy, and one who avoids sentiment. 

  • Young Iris: Jesses best friend, 18. The leader in the friendship. 

  • Walter: a shy, gentle an ungainly farm boy, 18-20 years old. 

1993: 

  • Jesse: 68, still spry and lippy but there’s a bitter side to her now. 

  • Iris: 68, shows her age more than Jesse, is confused, on the borderline of dementia. 

  • Ace: a smooth operator, totally untrustworthy in Jesse’s opinion. In his 60’s.
