Weekends, Thursday, March 10th through Sunday, March 20th, 2011, for Eight Performances only
A variation on the Broadway hit The Odd Couple, Tom Ziegler’s Grace and Glorie is a bittersweet comedy about two very different women who find a common ground in an unlikely meeting. While it is remarkably funny, it also brings up some powerful emotions that keep the two characters and the audience on an emotional roller coaster.
Grace and Glorie tells the tale of Grace (Nancy Gresham), a comfortably religious, cantankerous 90-year-old mountain woman, who has checked herself out of a hospital and returned to her native Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia to die.
Her volunteer, do-gooder hospice worker, Glorie (Norma Richardson), is a sophisticated New York transplant with lots of big city baggage.
From this bond between two women, whose meeting in real life would be improbable, comes a comedy with great tenderness. The two women are polar opposites. Their verbal clashes set off comic sparks. The often-witty dialogue is great fun, accentuated by impeccable comic timing between Grace and Glorie.
Grace and Glorie, directed by Marian Sorensen, is honest, hopeful, sentimental, and filled with good humor. A crowd pleaser. The Main Street Players, 115 North Hill Street, Griffin, GA, bring Grace and Glorie to the stage March 10th through March 20th: Thursdays @ 7:30PM, Fridays @ 7:30PM, Saturdays @ 7:30PM and Sundays at 3:00PM.
Reprised from the highly successful run in 2007, Grace and Glorie was last seen at Main Street Players in November of that year with the same talented cast.
