Duck Hunter Shoots Angel - Play

Where
101 East North Broad Street, Walhalla, SC 29691 [ Map ]
Description
The play is the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist & his reluctant photographer, who don't believe any of it—until feathers, wings & a tiara are discovered along the way. The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations & cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp. Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, The play has been hailed by audiences as a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson. Directed by Jimmy O. Burdette.
