Hapeville Performing Arts Center Presents: The ReRooting
Brewing up a storm is common in Mississippi. In The ReRooting: The Culmination of The Rooting Place Saga by Betty Chaney, one such storm erupts creating a disaster of epic proportions for Jeffrey Lee. Unknown to the rest of the family, he needs to flee the farm Oba’s great, great grandmother Mama Ida had willed to him. Before he can leave, however, a boisterous young woman and her son arrive. Is it by chance that she and her son have come here to visit? And is it by chance that her son turns up missing during a tornado watch a few days later? It may take one final confrontation between Oba and Jeffrey Lee to finally tide the storm that rages.
This show is rated PG-15. Audience discretion is advised.
