Cast of 4 women | A darkly comic southern drama about love, art, and the power of women. This heart-wrenching story of a reclusive Alabama folk artist won the David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize. After a tornado barrels through town leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When a prominent photographer visits to take pictures of June’s scars, both are forced to reconcile the pain of loss and recovery. This all-female drama explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it. • Read more about ALABASTER (reviews, pix, upcoming productions): https://www.audreycefaly.com/alabaster-alabamagoatplay • Other plays by Audrey Cefaly: MAYTAG VIRGIN, THE GULF (winner of the 2018 Lammy Award for LGBTQ Drama), THE LAST WIDE OPEN, LOVE IS A BLUE TICK HOUND

    This play is life changing, for the actors and the audience. A true theatrical experience. Heartwarming, hilarious, gut-wrenching, all of it.

    A gorgeously powerful piece about loving hard and moving forward from trauma with a world of memories and emotions guiding our journey towards healing. Beautiful work!
