ALABASTER by Audrey Cafely

A darkly comical, southern drama about love, art, and the power of women. After a tornado barrels through town leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When a prominent photographer visits to take pictures of June's scars, both are forced to reconcile the pain of loss and recovery. This all-female drama explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it.

This heart-wrenching story of a reclusive Alabama folk artist won the David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize.
