Written by Audrey Cefaly

Staged reading, directed by Rachel Sharp

A noted photographer sets out to explore the topography of “scars.” Her journey lands her in the mysterious realm of an undiscovered folk artist on a small farm in North Alabama. This intimate portrait explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it.

Fall School of Theater performances as part of Mason Arts at Home are free. Our students are creating work under challenging circumstances and many face increased financial hardship due to COVID-19. A gift of any size in support of scholarships will help these young artists complete their education. Make a gift.
