A LOVESONG FOR MISS LYDIA

May 15-16, 2020 | 7:30 p.m.

May 17, 2020 | 3 p.m.

Playwright Don Evans packs issues of religion, community, adultery, and age discrimination into his story about a lonely church elder who rents a room to a charming stranger with a questionable reputation. Miss Lydia first welcomes him, then suspects he's taken her money. In comedic succession, she finds out she's wrong, lets him throw her a birthday party, finds out he's had affairs with two of her loved ones, agrees to give him her savings so he can run a candy store out of her living room, endures his drunken rage when "the man" won't give him a loan and suspects he's taken her money again. The play flows in humanity and humor.
