This is a developmental production working in collaboration with Ryan Scott Oliver.  The work has had several readings.  This will be a full production adapted for Theatre Elision.

The story takes place in the mid-1940s in southern United States.  The characters are a group of "tramps" living rough, riding the rails.  Telling stories for entertainment, they share the tale of Sheriff Quimby and his wife.  The "tramps" take on various characters as they act out the story.  There will be a cast of 8, likely 4 women and 4 men.  We will be looking for some to play instruments (guitar, violin, ukulele, or mandolin plus hand percussion).  Most actors will play multiple characters.  Those listed below are the main characters to be played.

Willa - an unmannered young woman, orphaned at a young age

Vesta - Sheriff's wife, a calculating social climber

Quimby - Sheriff, married to Vesta

George - Willa's brother

Jack - Tramp/Narrator
