The Ballad of Weedy Peetstraw
A Bluegrass Opera
By Peter Anderson and John Millard
Who wants some of that Old Time Religion?
Who wants to do some Soul Searching?
Who wants to be Saved?
If you do, then come on down to the farm!
This summer, Caravan brings back one of its greatest hits - a musical comedy featuring a Bluegrass inspired score by John Millard, and a hilarious script (of Biblical proportions) by Peter Anderson.
Weedy is at a crossroads:
Weedy Peetstraw loves his Pa. Weedy Peetstraw loves his banjo. Weedy Peetstraw loves Jeeva. But his Pa is dead, the farm needs work, and the girl is trouble, says his Ma. Time to be a man, says the Reverend.
But what if there is more to life than work? What if there is more to life than duty? What if there is more to life than meets the eye?
When Weedy meets a mysterious stranger and his canine companion "Hellhound", they sniff a soul in peril, and pounce.
The story of a young man who'd do anything to get off the farm and away from his Ma...even sell his soul to the Devil himself...
