Although it is hard for us on staff to realize that we are already less than a month away from our closing production of 2016-2017, designer/director Jeff Salisbury has been hard at work planning this area premiere for nine months now, and we are all getting more and more excited about bringing a new adaptation of this significant novel to our afO stage.
