This Depression-era Broadway blockbuster, which exposes the South’s social and racial injustices with biting satirical humor, portrays an ignorant, dysfunctional and hardscrabble family of Georgia sharecroppers whose spirits are as depleted as the soil in which they toil.
Family patriarch Jeeter Lester and his clan are caught up in the excesses of evangelism and the dark side of lust as they strive just to survive the devastation of poverty.
The reading is directed by Apollo Dukakis and features ANW resident artists.
