When Violet was young, the blade of her father’s axe slipped off its handle while he was chopping wood and left a deep gash from her nose, down her left cheek. More than 10 years later, the scar still makes her feel physically inadequate—a feeling only heightened by the image-obsessed climate of the 1960s. But Violet has faith. She’s seen a televangelist in Oklahoma heal the sick, and believes he can work a miracle to make her scar disappear. So she boards a Greyhound and begins a cross-country ride that takes her on more than just a physical journey. On the road she meets and bonds with her fellow passengers, learns about beauty and love, and explores her outsider status from a new perspective.
Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga
The Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga doesn't shy away from provocation. In fact, most of their productions are downright gutsy. The non-profit theater company— founded by local artists who eat, drink, and breathe stage dust—specializes in professional stagings of new and classic works that stir the imagination and gleefully push buttons. Not just geared toward grown-ups and theater connoisseurs, the ETC also conducts a youth program of camps and classes for the next generation of thespians.
