In Rehearsals Now! Baptized to the Bone!


by Dave Johnson
Directed by J. Daniel Herring
Featuring Hayley Galbraith, David Marinovich, and Matthew Schiltz.
Dark Comedy.

Ottis (Matthew Schiltz) is dying to leave Sand Hills, North Carolina and produce his “Gospel Poetry Opera” in New York. With no money and few prospects, he decides to hustle Gladys (Hayley Galbraith), the local preacher’s wife. What she doesn’t know is that Ottis is also hustling her husband, the preacher (David Marinovich). The scams deepen, complications ensue, and events take an unexpected turn. In a swealtering North Carolina summer, be careful what you wish for!

Baptized to the Bone, opening August 17th at 8 pm at the Broken Leg Stage, 1470 N. Van Ness, Fresno.
