Holy Days by Sally Nemeth

directed by Peter Zinn

 

In April 1936, Kansas is plagued with drought and decay in the wake of The Great Depression. America migrates toward work but one family is rooted to their barren farm, haunted by loss and a once-prosperous life. As another spring approaches with no sign of renewal they begin to adapt to the inevitable, eroding with their surroundings even as they learn to accept their fate. The Los Angeles Times said of the original production: “Sally Nemeth's Holy Days is a stage poem. It is uncommonly affecting, an elegy for the lost souls in the dying plains who clung to their blighted homesteads like bees to a poisoned hive.”
