About this show

Overlap Productions presents the world premiere of Fits & Starts: The Sacred Heart, by Vicki Caroline Cheatwood. This surreal new drama is the recipient of the Robert L. Bone Memorial Playwriting Award, and named Best New Play by the Southwest Theater Association. Tania Inessa Kirkman directs. At the beginning of Fits & Starts, it's a normal day like any other: Pappaw Rogers sits in his rocker on the porch, Mother and Nadine are at the beauty parlor, and the sheets are drying on the line. Without warning, a storm of cosmic proportions kicks up and day turns to night. Suddenly, there's an old Jewish man sitting in Pappaw's rocker, Nadine is pregnant and three truck drivers from Jersey have been lured into town by an exceptionally bright star overhead. Mother is struck blind and convinced that The Rapture has come. Only time will tell... Additional performance: Monday, Jan 23 at 8pm.
