Victory Gardens' 2000-2001 season opener is Douglas Post's Blissfield. Post's newest mystery tells the story of Carter, a foreign correspondent stationed in Beirut, who returns to his midwest hometown for the funeral of his best friend, the town's mayor, who apparently took his own life. Or, was he murdered? Perhaps the mayor's progressive agenda for the town alienated certain members of this affluent community. And, if so, what does that say about Carter himself and this bucolic town he once called home?
