AN APPEAL TO THE WOMAN OF THE HOUSE

by Christie Perfetti Williams

directed by Delisa White

An Appeal to the Woman of the House 

APPEAL takes place on one fateful night in May, 1961 in the farmhouse of Rose and Gideon Walker on the Alabama-Tennessee border. It is just after midnight when David and his fellow lost Freedom Riders knock on the door seeking assistance in the form of a phone and a place to stay until daylight. But Gideon, who knows this is Klan country, is reluctant to let in this band of mixed race college kids until Rose forces him to open the door with the acknowledgement that "they're just babies." What follows is a touching story of race, love, acceptance and learning how to stand up for what you believe. Although AN APPEAL TO THE WOMAN OF THE HOUSE is inspired by historical events it is a work of fiction. Retro Productions is thrilled to be presenting a civil rights story that is rooted in love and respect for those who put themselves in harms way for what they believe to be right.
