“Grace & Glorie” is Graceful & Glorious!

Friday, March 8th, 2013
Grace and Glorie at the Tater Patch Theater in Jasper

May be the Best Play You’ve Never Heard Of!

Alex Nawrocki, Veteran Tater Patch Actor, makes his directorial debut with this 1997 play by Tom Ziegler. Alex has done an outstanding job of setting the stage and preparing the actors, but the real story here is the striking performance by two new Tater Patch actors. Pat Northcutt, as Grace, and Deb Heimler, as Glorie, delivered a stunning tour de force that was spell binding from the first curtain to the fading lights of the last. I have done a little work on stage myself and watching these two carry over two hours of dialogue that never lagged or wanted in any way was an amazing education in itself.

Ziegler’s story line takes two women from different times and places and forces them to deal with the implications of life & death and each other producing scenes that are alternately knee slapping funny and where’s my hanky touching. Grace is a 90 year old from rural Virginia who is just trying to get through her last few days before going home to meet her Maker and Glorie is a young, former professional now socialite, hospice volunteer expecting to make those last few days as easy as possible. Neither gets exactly what they were expecting, both gain from the interaction and the audience is treated to a delightful and insightful evening.

Tonight was opening night and it will run for three weekends. If you are reading this and you live within driving distance, go to the Tater Patch Players Web site, order your tickets and get yourself down to the theater. You don’t want to miss this one.

Consider making a date night out of it; we have great restaurants like The Woodbridge Inn, or 61 Main. You can be at dinner at 6 in either one and be in your seats well before the curtain.

We are extremely fortunate to have an outstanding local theater group like the Tater Patch Players, call your friends and spread the word for the next 3 weekends the place to be is in your seats at “Grace & Glorie.”

See ya ’round the mountains,
