THE GREENBELT ARTS CENTER AND THE SEVENTH STREET PLAYHOUSE PRESENT CHARLESTON REVISITED by Anthony E. Gallo Directed by Erica Drezek and Anthony E. Gallo Friday, August 6, Saturday, August 7, Friday, August 13, Saturday, August 14 @ 8 PM Sunday August 8 and 15 @ 2 PM
Eighty years ago, Charleston matron Charlotte Butler(Bonnie Jourdan) made a decision that changed the world. Tonight she faces that decision in her home and under the stars in St. Philip’s Cemetery. People of the past appear in various forms in this two-act mystery-comedy set on Logan Street in the heart of Charleston , South Carolina ’s renowned Historic District. Indomitable Charleston matron Charlotte Butler raises thousands of flowers to the hum of classical music, cultivates birds, plays championship bridge, ballroom dances daily, sometimes cleans her own house, and spars with both her parrot Jacob and flighty neighbor Ginny (Gin) Middleton(Erica Drezek). Gin's latest flame is the distinguished former New Hampshire Senator Mark Smythe(Colin Davies), now a Logan Street resident, who appears to have a curious interest in Charlotte. When Gin has to cancel one of her dates with Mark because of an emergency in Savannah , he slips in and visits Charlotte . The visit proves to be more than one of mere curiosity, as we discover that these two bizarre people have much in common. Charlotte makes Mark accompany her to St. Philip’s Cemetery at night where they encounter someone she does not want to see. Greenbelt Arts Center 123 Centerway.
