It’s 1980 in Greenville, South Carolina and Donna has found herself in a country song cliché – she left her abusive husband, moved into a house of her own, and for the first time is in control of her life. But the trauma of her past keeps haunting her and Donna finds that her life is becoming a song she’s heard too many times. This actor-musician based musical tells the story of moving on after a failed marriage and the support system that can come from good friends and family. With Donna at the lead, a country band takes you through her lessons of redemption and hope.
The cast includes Kelly Combs*, Charlie Irving* and Kirk Jackson* with Lena Dudley, Joey Harbert and Judy Lea Steele.
The production team includes Peter Gertas (scenic and props design), Kate Setzer Kamphausen (costume design) and Claire Yearman (fight choreography).
