Kentucky's Oldest Outdoor Theatre Stages Final Installment in Heartwarming Trilogy
Submitted on July 11, 2018
Angela Correll’s “Granted” is being staged by Pioneer Playhouse in Danville each Tuesday through Saturday from now until July 21. Adapted for the theatre by Holly Hepp-Galvan and Robby Henson, “Granted” is Correll’s final installment in the heartwarming trilogy that began with “Grounded” and continued with “Guarded.” The novelist is a 1988 Georgetown College graduate.
A Kentucky Voices original, the “Granted” adaptation takes the audience from the comforts of the Kentucky countryside to old-world Tuscany with a cast of memorable characters. It is the tale of former international flight attendant Annie Taylor who is embracing her country roots and racing toward a future with her sustainable farmer fiancé, but wedding plans are complicated by her new job, a mysterious ex-boyfriend, and a narcissistic father.
Meanwhile, Annie's old-fashioned grandma, Beulah, is facing a shake-up in the last place she ever thought she would - home. A crisis on May Hollow Road follows a friend's betrayal, challenging Beulah's forgiving nature. An unwelcome diet, a new house guest, and a possible overseas trip will all stretch her spirit - if she lets it.
