As touching and relevant today as when first created, the story itself is a memory play, narrated by the restless son of an aging Southern belle. It tells the tales of a family’s schemes to find a husband for Laura, the painfully shy daughter. Weston’s staging, produced in concert with Florida’s Gulfshore Playhouse, features a remarkable cast and an all-star creative team directed by Gulfshore’s founder and Artistic Director Kristen Coury. Coury’s career has brought her from Walt Disney Theatrical to Andrew Lloyd Webber to London’s English Shakespeare Company, and finally, to Gulfshore, where she’s directed nearly all of the productions to date.
