WETUMPKA, ALA - The Wetumpka Depot Players are pleased to announce their award winning production of Second Samuel will be performed at the Wetumpka Depot Players theater on September 11 at 2pm. Two other sold out performances are also scheduled for Sept 9 and 10.
Written by Atlanta playwright Pamela Parker, this comical and touching play about life and friendships is set in the rural Georgia town of Second Samuel during the summer of 1949. It is a time when everyone's glass is half full; the women get their hair done at Omaha Nebraska's Beauty Shop and the men drink at the local bar. The young and simple-minded B Flat takes the audience on a tour of his town, introducing us to characters who must deal with the revelation of an unexpected secret that shakes the town to its very core! Although diversity might not have been a part of the vocabulary in 1949, it certainly found a place in Second Samuel.
