Alabama Rain
Alabama Rain
By Heather McCutchen.

Cast: 5w. Monty Lou's been pregnant for 10 years; Laurie Laurie's dead spirit sings from the old magnolia tree; Pheenie's walking the entire coast of Florida; Rachel's gone to fetch the Ouija board; and little Dallas LaDean is determined to save them all. In Alabama Rain, Heather McCutchen tells the tale of five sisters living in a mythical southern town where it has not rained in 40 years. The play examines the perils of a stagnant existence as the sisters thirst for fertility and growth. When the order of their lives suddenly deteriorates—one sister flees to find the ocean, another drops dead of heartbreak and another begins to waste away from dehydration—the LaDean family begins a magical quest for water. They struggle with a mysterious well that runs deep in their own backyard, which may or may not have water somewhere at the bottom. This well comes to represent their withered past but also holds the key to a future ripe with potential. In Alabama Rain, these women do battle with the powerful force of "the way things have always been." Unit set.
