This Stretch of Montpelier - A full-length reading (encore) of the play nominated for 7 Planet Connections Theatre Festivity Awards in 2018!

By Kelley Girod

Directed by Andrew Block

On a hot and humid summer day off a lonely stretch of road in Montpelier, Louisiana, the mud is red and mosquitoes circle their prey. Asphyxiated by the weight of the past, haunting memories and secrets bleed into the present. As darkness descends, isolated neighbors -- divided by property lines, race, class and tradition -- reckon with the truth and their uncertain fates as they look for refuge in surprising and unlikely places.
