This play is an adaptation of the comic novel by North Carolina author Clyde Edgerton. Mattie Rigsbee is a 78-year-old widow who is feeling that she is “slowing down” yet still wants some purpose in her life. She would like some grandchildren, but that is not going to occur. Into her life comes Wesley Benfield, an adolescent and a juvenile delinquent, with a mouth full of foul language and bad teeth, and a craving for good food. The play is about this unique “couple.”
