Details

“Clop Clop on the Reedy: A Tale of Huguenot Mill” follows the struggle of 3 characters in the 1890s: MaryLou (a 15-year-old biscuit-maker), Ambrose (a Horse Cab Driver, known locally as “The Story Man”), and Charles H. Lanneau Jr. (historic founder of the Huguenot Mill.) Their responses to a tragic event in 1892 propel the action through 1907—all woven together by a whimsical Narrator/Stagehand named Hack who rolls the actors past images of Old Greenville in an authentic horse cart.

The hour-long, one-act performance is sponsored by a Metropolitan Arts Council grant as well as the Fine Arts Ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Greenville. The new play written by First Pres covenant partner, Dave Burke, will receive its premiere performance on Friday, May 31 at 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:00pm with a preshow talk by John Nolan at 6:30pm.
