What if, in 1935, Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Louisiana's Gov. Huey Long had had a face-to-face meeting? Would it have changed the course of history?
Er...maybe not...if they met at a Cajun shack on the Bayou. And FDR (or at least his double) was in his cups and running off at the mouth. And FDR's wife Eleanor came to harangue him about his mistress.
B,S Productions presents the world premiere of a new light comedy, The President's Double, written by local playwright Tom Hickman and directed by Steve Bailey.
The play will be performed on two consecutive Fridays and Saturdays -- May 21 & 22, and May 28 & 29, 2010 -- starting at 8:00 p.m. Performances will be held at Neptune Beach Senior Activity Center, 2004 Forest Ave., Neptune Beach. Admission is $10 per person. Wine is available at intermission, per donations. (Caution: The play contains some adult language and situations.)
If further information or directions are needed, call director Steve Bailey at (904) 246-0312.
