BACK COUNTY CRIMES is the story of a small rural town, as told by the town’s family doctor. It’s a poetic tale of forbidden love affairs, sordid murders, tragic misunderstandings, and comic endeavors, similar to Thornton Wilder’s OUR TOWN but with an edge. Playwright Lanie Robertson has a savvy sense of black comedy, setting the play “in the little town of Duty in the county known as Love.” Music and singing fill the play, as a gallery of characters move through compellingly tragic, or caustically comic vignettes. As the town doctor’s memories come to life in front of us, we are shown a tapestry of the best and worst of humanity. In the end we are left with a haunting affirmation of life, ready to embrace the themes of ‘duty’ and ‘love’ with new understanding.

November 15-17 and November 22-24, 2013

All performances at 8pm, except Sunday matinees at 2pm.
