The one-act play, written by the Minnesota Land Stewardship Project’s Doug Nopar, starring local actors Cindy Hoey and Charles Brown, and director Doug Day, presents an elderly farm couple, Gerald and Nettie, wrestling with the question of what will happen to the land that has been in Nettie’s family for five generations. Their dilemma is a common one as established farmers grow gray and neither their children nor grandchildren plan to return to the family farm. The play ends with no clear answer, but gives the audience plenty to reflect on and talk about when the curtain falls.
