Trailer Park Elegy
Written & Directed by Michael Presley Bobbitt

September 1-17

World Premiere! While working at a trailer park to escape the publicity from a dark episode in his recent past, Elijah finds the cremated remains of a woman sitting forgotten on a shelf for the past 17 years. The effort to uncover the woman’s lost humanity pushes Elijah, his eccentric friends and a lovely goat named Mabel to the brink of ruin. This dark, funny play (that received its first reading here at last year’s Gainesville Homegrown Local Playwrights’ Showcase) explores the line in the sand beyond which we lose ourselves as human beings, and challenges the audience to find value in even the worst among us.

Stick around for a complementary postmission (after-show) beverage, and meet our author and director, and our cast and crew!
