"Imagine going to see “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and sitting on the couch next to Martha, matching her shot for shot, and you get the basic idea."


Chief theater critic for the Chicago Tribune gives SOUTHERN GOTHIC 4 stars (out of 4)!

THE STORY

It’s 1961. Ashford, Georgia. Tom Collins is the drink of choice. Dean Martin’s on the radio. Everyone’s driving a Cadillac, and Suzanne Wellington is about to turn 40. Four couples gather to celebrate the big day — old college buddies who’ve known one another for decades. But even best friends keep secrets, and over the course of this evening's party, a few of those are bound to be revealed...   Content warning: please note that SOUTHERN GOTHIC portrays scenes of domestic violence.
