Falcon Theatre
May 5-20
Newport

Directed by Ted Weil

Cast: Ken Early as Sam, Rupert Spraul as Hally & Deondra Means as Willie

The story recounts a long and rainy afternoon that a white teenager named Hally spends with Willie and Sam, black servants who work in the tearoom owned by Hally’s mother. Sam has affectionately regarded the teen almost as a nephew since Hally was a child and has tried to shepherd the youth into adulthood. The afternoon’s friendly conversations of pleasant, shared memories and of Hally’s current life are halted by the news that Hally’s absent alcoholic and racist father is coming home from the hospital. Knowing that his father’s tyrannical presence will make his home life unbearable with his drinking, fighting, and need for constant attention, Hally becomes distraught and lashes out at his longtime mentor. The possibly permanent rifts that the teen causes in the relationship become the focus of the story.
