Williams (produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Co.), as their 2015 Dinner Theater production. The play centers around two sisters who grew up in Bullfrog Waller, but Millicent left the country for the big-city life while Coreen stayed in the country as a cornbread and grits kinda’ girl.
