The Stick Wife

2nd Stage

 

By Darrah Cloud

May 8-10, 14-17, 2020

Housewife Jessie Bliss lives with husband Ed in a small clapboard house in Birmingham, Alabama. The year is 1963. To escape her hardscrabble life and Ed’s abuse, she wraps herself in daydreams. When four little girls are killed in the bombing of a black church, Jessie suspects that her husband and his friends are involved. Her world collapses, as she is torn between choosing what is right or what might keep her safe. Taut and compelling, The Stick Wife presents a riveting view of the often unexplored and unsettling side of tragedy.

  • Due to the intimacy of 2nd Stage and the proximity of the stage to the door and seating area, there will be NO LATE SEATING. Please plan ahead as the exterior doors are locked promptly at 8:00 pm.
  • 2nd Stage is wheelchair accessible via our elevator, however, there is no space for wheelchair parking to watch the show. Patrons must be willing to transfer to a seat (steps involved) if they would like to attend a 2nd Stage production.

pg13 SQ Running time: estimated 2 hrs

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.
