Limelight Theatre presents Foxfire, on stage November 29-December 23. Foxfire, by Susan Cooper and music by Jonathan Brielle, is a glimpse into the lives of a family in Southern Appalachia. Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband Hector.
Annie’s tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away.
Annie’s battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Played on Broadway by Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, this couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country folk.
Foxfire is directed by Harolyn Sharpe. Cast includes Meganne Johnson as Annie, Brian Johnson as Dillard, Rich Nowell as Hector, Carrington Tate as Prince, Elizabeth Gerhardt as Holly and Ron Price as Doctor. Foxfire is onstage from November 30th through December 23rd in Limelight Theatre’s Koger Gamache Black Box located at 11 Old Mission Avenue in uptown St. Augustine.
