Synopsis: This original play written by Tonya S. Hayes is based on oral history via interviews collected by the Telling Trees project of Stone County. The plot follows a young Len Blackwell, a well known coast attorney, on his paper route as he discovers the everyday heroes in his community; military, police, fireman, and community leaders. On this journey he realizes he has wonderful examples of heroes in his own community and that he can become a hero to others. This is a community and college collaboration involving community members, leaders, families, and college students. This production celebrates what makes the community unique and special: the people who reside there.
Tickets: $5 general admisssion; military, police, firemen, emergency personnel are free.
