Barter Theatre's Appalachian Festival of New Plays 2019
"Let Maisy Rest In Peace" is a love story about a simple man who, at his wife’s dying request, respectfully buries her in the front yard of their home in Tinder Hill, Alabama. Some town folks loyally support the gravesite location while others are unsure of the “flashy” memorial that’s drawing considerable attention on Main Street. The Town Council disapproves and intervenes. To protect the gravesite, at all costs, Walter earnestly attempts many extraordinary maneuvers but is ultimately torn between honoring his promise to Maisy and considering the needs of his economically distressed community.
The NEW JERSEY ONE-MINUTE PLAY FESTIVAL (#1MPF) returns for its 8th year, continuing its exciting partnership with Mile Square Theatre. The marathon evening of one-minute plays by over 30 of New Jersey’s established and emerging playwrights and directors plays three performances only: Saturday June 30th at 8 PM and Sunday July 1st at 3 and 7 PM.
