Independence
A Drama
by: Lee Blessing

Directed by: Jay Mower
Produced by: Sherrie and Joel Colbourn

 
"Hats off to Blessing, Mower and the entire cast. This play is a winner." North County Times.

"an emotional wringer...a complicated adult drama that succeeds" MyLocalNews.com

The setting is the small town of Independence, Iowa, the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs.
Her oldest daughter, Kess, is a university professor in Minneapolis, but she has come home at the request of her sister, Jo who is concerned for Evelyn's mental health.

Kess wants to cut her family ties once and for all; Jo, an incurable romantic and longtime virgin, has now become pregnant; while Sherry, salty-tongued and amoral, wants only to finish high school so she can leave home for good.
In the end, there is no accommodation possible but, instead, only a kind of arbitrary independence.
