Adapted from Lee Smith's "Fair and Tender Ladies"
Originally co-adapted and directed by Mark Hunter, this spunky mountain woman's story takes us in a
flashback through a life of “livin’ on love.” With a sensuous nature and a flair for storytelling, Ivy paints a
vivid picture of 20th Century revivals, mine disasters, rural electrification, the Depression, and three wars.
Theatrical excitement! A lifetime's worth of sass, whoop, hurt, and reflection
