The story: In 1910 rural New England, frustrated, forty-something Helen (Amanda Soden) has spent years taking care of the family farm. Each day as she tends to her chickens and biscuit baking, she dreams of doing more with her life. Tired and itching for adventure, she impulsively buys a caravan filled with books from a wiry Irishman named Roger (Orion Bradshaw) and takes to the road as a traveling bookseller. With Roger’s help, Helen attempts to enlighten rural farm folk whose reading is limited to the Sears catalogues and Farmer’s Almanacs. As Helen travels the countryside and learns the book selling trade, she runs into adventures, life lessons, and unexpected love.
Special note: On Wednesday, January 24, the theatre continues its program called WOW: 25-35. For audience-goers 35 and under, tickets are priced at $25 each. At this performance, there will be a complimentary wine tasting one hour before curtain courtesy of World Class Wines.
