Staged Reading

FILTHY RAGS depicts unlikely relationships.  Set in Texas in the 1930s, a poor black woman (Ruby) visits a white murderer (Van) in prison with a mission to make a difference in his life.  She is met with strong resistance from the prison’s psychiatric physician as well as open hostility from the man she visits.  As time goes by, secrets and ghosts from the past ooze out of the pores and crevices of these people’s souls forcing each of them to deal with their present and examine their relationship to each other.

 

Part of the 2014 Open Stage series.
