Join us for two weekends in October as we present "SOME PLACE CALLED MAYOR'S INCOME, TN". This production is a collection of 8 short plays written by Jonathan Cook. Five of these plays are brand new to Augusta and the other three premiered in Augusta in previous years and went on to be produced in other cities and win awards.
"SOME PLACE CALLED MAYOR'S INCOME, TN" consists of the following plays -
'LOBSTER MAN' - Mark and Christa are trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, feeling certain that they are the last two people on the planet. That reality is shattered, however, when a stranger arrives at their residence and Mark is faced with the bizarre fact that this visitor is someone he created in a fairy-tale he told to Christa earlier that day.

'REFLECTIONS' - After the bizarre disappearance of their daughter, a man and woman are assigned to a grief counselor to help cope with their sadness. Their story, however, leaves the counselor wondering what is fact and what is fiction.

He tries to convince her to change the ending for the final performance – to turn her character’s tragic death into a finale where she survives. Free will versus a scripted fate.
