Grace and Glorie
By Tom Ziegler
Directed by John Munn
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

January 25-February 2, 2008

This comic, yet poignant play is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Follow along as we watch the growing relationship between Grace, a feisty 90 year-old cancer patient who has returned to her beloved homestead cottage to die alone; and Gloria, the sophisticated volunteer hospice worker from New York who is sent to care for her. You will be amused and uplifted as their relationship evolves in this sentimental crowd-pleaser starring BCT’s own Associate Artistic Director, Alyson Soma.
