WHEN HEROD CAME TO GEORGIA

A Next Voices New Play Reading
by James McLindon
directed by Adrienne Boris
Black Box Theater
Sunday June 5 at 3pm

When Evaline’s baby daughter is taken hostage by her Master to ensure Evaline does not reveal the family’s hidden gold to Sherman’s Army, Evaline’s mistress, Rebekah, assures her that the child will be returned safely once the danger has passed. Meanwhile, Evaline is harboring Cobb, a poor rebel deserter and Brock, a wealthy, escaped Union officer. But unknown to Evaline, Cobb knows of the treasure and has come to find it to save his starving family, with or without Brock’s help.
