Synopsis

Upon discovering a stray dog on her back porch, Mattie Rigsbee decides she's too old to keep a pet and calls the dogcatcher. Little does she know that the dogcatcher, Lamar Benfield, will open her eyes to a whole world she never knew existed, a world that includes car theft, prison breaks and a juvenile delinquent named Wesley who is as desperate for a family as she is. Armed with only her mouthwatering corn bread and a deep abiding faith in the Almighty, Mattie is determined to woo Wesley to the side of God and good Southern manners … if she can just manage to stay out of jail herself.

Customer Reviews

Review by John Cardy, Community Arts Council of Blount Counth, Boaz, Ala.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Lighting is a key element in producing this play. It takes 4 areas for the different scenes. Also you need to find a wicker cane rocker with a seat that can be removed and another seat to put back on later. ... Also, it takes a lot of cornbread.
"
Tip by Rickey Myers, Sioux City Community Theatre, Sioux City, Iowa
