Development Information:

Home of the Great Pecan began as a stand-alone one-act entitled Brain Sucking (the first scene of the play) and was produced at Actor's Theatre of Louisville in late 1994 and subsequently published in Dramatics Magazine, a publication for theatre educators.

The short play was later expanded into a full-length play and received significant development help from director, Shelly Delaney, and writer/actor, Colleen Cosgrove. Special thanks should be doled out to Sandi Kimmel and David Marantz for musical contributions for the Pecan Serenade.
