Romulus Linney: Love Drunk (Southeastern premiere) - starring Jess Jones as Karen and John Honeycutt as Wilbur; directed by Joshua Benjamin.
Based loosely on Henrik Ibsen's classic The Master Builder, Love Drunk was Romulus Linney's last play. It is the story of an older man who picks up a much younger woman in a cafe and takes her to his retreat, the tower room of an Appalachian Mountain log house. Two more unlikely people to find anything in common could not be easily found. What follows is is a sexual tête-à-tête full of suspense, humor, fantasies, out-and-out lies, and a few moments of connection and peace.
