Weekends of June 10 – 26

Premiere of Seeking Red

A gripping new drama about truth and identity revolves around a young woman named Grey Rhodes. She was raised by her Uncle Ty ever since she was a baby when her single mother was run over by a semi-truck — or so she has been told. This intriguing drama will cause you to question the “little white lies” we tell to protect those we love. This play is not recommended for children due to the crimes discussed.
