Book and Lyrics Fred Alley
Based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff
Directed by David Saint

When Percy Talbott, a young woman with an uncertain past, becomes resident of tiny Gilead, Wisconsin, the town welcomes her with suspicion and distrust. Determined to start anew, Percy soon devises a scheme to breathe life into the dying backwater county and to bring solace to a grieving mother. But it's going to take more than good will, she finds, to overcome the unchanging ways of Gilead, a town still haunted by tragedies of the past. A tender, funny, and uplifiting new musical from James Valcq and Fred Alley.
