Indoor Theatre – Staged Reading of a New Play - Free to the public With a child’s simple reasoning, 11-year old Grace Meadows, measures her world caught in the Civil War. This story shares the wisdom of innocence as the feisty young narrator and her family struggle to survive from 1865-1866 in Bransford, TN. This deeply moving story covers the tragedy and issues of slavery, self-determination, the privileges of class, and the sacrifices made to escape tension, confusion and contradictions of the war that surround her.
