Greetings from Mississippi

We are proud to announce that we will be performing The Unsatisfactory Supper in The Tennessee Project, May 1st to 7th. The Unsatisfactory Supper is set in the 1940's in Mississippi and features poorly cooked greens, poems of nature - and full on Southern accents!

Reuniting after The Story of Mrs. Winchester, the cast includes Sarah Grange as Baby Doll, Neil Brown as Archie Lee and Erin Hamilton as Aunt Rose. The show is directed by Rebecca Young Hart and stage managed by Melissa Wright. Joining the team on costumes is Katie Munden, who previously worked on DANFORTH.

Is something here maybe ringing a bell for ya? Baby Doll is also the title of the 1956 film directed by Elia Kazan, featuring Karl Malden, Carroll Baker and Eli Wallach. The screenplay was inspired by both The Unsatisfactory Supper and another Tennessee one act, 27 Wagons Full of Cotton.

Performance Dates:

Tuesday, May 1st The Annex: The Annex Live
Wednesday, May 2nd Roncesvalles: TBA
Thursday, May 3rd North York: TBA
Friday, May 4th St. Clair West: Galleria 814
Saturday, May 5th Cabbagetown: Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs
