Theatre in the Round Players
January 7 - 30, 2011
Audience discussion follows the matinee performance on January 16th.

In the Woolworth's store in McCarthy, Texas, the Disciples of James Dean are gathering for their 20th reunion. They were teenagers when movie star Dean filmed Giant in a nearby town, and their memories intermingle with flashbacks to that eventful time. This year, though, their reunion attracts a mystery guest. A comedy of Southern sass and spice, and emotional surprises.
