Directed by DTC Artistic Associate David Denson, Hot Georgia Sunday features a cast of leading local actors including Jessica D. Turner, James Crawford, Sean Hennigan, Clara Peretz, Lauren Hayden, and Clay Yocum.
A story about what happens in one small town in Northeast Georgia, when private desires and public morality collide, Hot Georgia Sunday brims over with lust, betrayal, and large quantities of Jim Beam. The well meaning, but inept members of the Vickery family cause trouble wherever they go. Glenn's caught stealing from the First Baptist Church. Flora can't work a day without maiming the customers. And Jenny's willing to do most anything for a little attention. It's hard to tell the difference between right and wrong in this tragicomic tale of dysfunction from one of the South's finest young writers.
"FRESH INK: Forward Motion exists to expose Dallas audiences to the country's most original playwrights and with Catherine Trieschmann's Hot Georgia Sunday we proudly uphold that tradition," said DTC Artistic Associate David Denson. "A unique blend of classic Southern gothic and razor sharp satire, Hot Georgia Sunday is a social parable of sin and redemption that offers a window into the painful and painfully funny nature of the human condition. It is the most exciting play I've encountered in a long time."
Evolution of FRESH INK/Forward Motion: FRESH INK/Forward Motion was launched during the 2003-04 season as FRESH INK: New Plays at Dallas Theater Center. The series featured readings of new plays in one-night only events that were free and open to the public. FRESH INK allowed Dallas Theater Center to invite playwrights from across the country to work in residence with local directors and actors as part of the theater's ongoing mission to create developmental opportunities for innovative and emerging writers. The staged readings were presented on select Monday evenings at Dallas Theater Center through fall 2005. In spring of 2006, FRESH INK/Forward Motion's mission expanded to include both play readings and workshop productions, showcasing the best of contemporary writing. -- www.dallastheatercenter.org
