Barter Theatre Presents “Morning After Grace” at The Harvester
450 Franklin Street
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
Angus and Abigail fall into each other’s lives after meeting at a funeral in Florida. Not the first place you’d expect to find romance after clocking plenty of miles on the road of life, but startling surprises come in unpredictable packages. Strangers just the day before, Abigail thinks she may finally be ready to take another chance on love, but Angus has a few issues to work through first. Enter neighbor Ollie, formerly a baseball player for the Detroit Tigers who now enjoys golf and yoga. Nothing is as it seems with this trio and every disclosure reveals a new perspective. This charming and big-hearted comedy takes us on an unexpected journey toward a new lease on life. Just when they think they’ve got it all figured out, well-traveled people can be rookies when it comes to learning the good stuff. “…a beautiful vignette about life…treated with kindness, humor, and lots of love.”
The Barter Theatre, founded in Abingdon, Va., in 1932, is one of the oldest professional acting troupes in the country, and is acclaimed for its diverse shows and actors. The Theatre was designated as Virginia’s Official State Theatre in 1946.
