Clarinda Ross, a Drama-Logue award winner for Best Actress in a solo performance, wrote and stars in this quirky and highly personal family memoir. A comic look at what a Southern daughter learned from her college professor parents. Inspired by the discovery of her father's journals after his death, Clarinda Ross takes us on a humorous and poignant journey in planes, trains and automobiles when she leaves her home to venture out into the big world. Compassion, etiquette, men and children are just a few of the subjects she examines through her wacky and uniquely Southern viewfinder.
