Based on the book of the same name by Alice Mead, Martha King DeSilva's Junebug and the Reverend is a world premiere play commissioned by Imagination Stage. This adaptation is a heart-warming drama of unlikely friendships and the triumph of spirit over real-life obstacles. Junebug earned his nickname back at the projects where he had a goody goody reputation and a habit of "bugging" everyone with too many questions. Now his Mom has taken a job at a retirement community promising him and his little sister a safer, happier home. But adjusting to living among old people, fighting off the bullies at his new school and, above all, finding a father figure to captain him through the difficulties of adolescence turn out to be rough sailing for our young hero. Kathryn Chase Bryer directs.
