Rock Hill, South Carolina, Thanksgiving. Johnnie, the youngest daughter of the blended Hall Family, can't take anymore of this shallow, empty lap of Southern luxury and stands up to her stepmother, abandons her home, and rips her already cracking family apart. After a silent and stressful Christmas with no word from her, Johnnie re-appears Easter morning with impossible stories from her journey, and an incredible power to heal the family she never stopped loving. Rock Hill: Southern Gothic is a family drama about independent spirit, hard love, unfailing loyalty, and the meaning and power of goodness, home, and home cooking.
Rock Hill: Southern Gothic is presented as part of MTCs New Works Series, which presents staged readings of works by new and emerging playwrights.
