Brief Synopsis:

Unrealistically romantic Callie was raised by her sassy, Bible-thumping grandmother and her two eccentric aunts in a small Kentucky town, but she yearns for more. When her fairy tale doesn’t turn out the way she expects, she grows strong and independent while learning what family is all about - the fiercest kind of love imaginable. A Southern Exposure is by local playwright Kelley Kingston-Strayer, who will be attending various performances.

Roles: 4 women

CALLIE HURT   Female, early 20s. Selfish and self-absorbed, she still has a clear sense of right and wrong. Her most distinguishing feature is a mop of hair that is a constant source of aggravation for her grandmother. Callie is full of enthusiasm and hope for life, likes to be right, and loves her grandmother and aunts fiercely.
HATTIE BELLE HURT   Female, 60+. Callie’s grandmother. A hard life and rigid moral code have left her opinionated and unyielding. However, her capacity for love is evident by her tender care for others. At times she can be funny and fun loving, at other times, overbearing and myopic.
IDA MAE   Female, 60+. She has a no-nonsense personality with a meat and potatoes outlook on life. She is a tell-it-like-it-is woman. Appears to be tough as nails on the outside, but has a soft heart full of love for her sisters and her niece.
MATTIE   Female, 60+. The oldest sibling, she suffers from dementia. However, like most dementia patients she has flashes of insight and is more cognizant of her surroundings than her family realizes. She wears wigs that become more elaborate throughout the play, and is a huge fan of baseball. She must be played realistically, without caricature.

A non-speaking crew member will also portray the neighborhood juvenile delinquent Johnny/Johnnie Meredith, who snoops, snacks, pilfers as he/she handles the numerous scene changes.

All characters speak in a Southern dialect.

All roles are available.
