A performance of Gary Carden’s play “Nance Dude” at the Rickman Store in Macon County will serve as a fundraiser for the Friends of the Rickman Store.
The play is at 6 p.m. on Nov. 4. Tickets are $15 and are on sale at the Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce.
This is the fourth play by Sylva playwright Carden that has been presented by the Friends of the Rickman Store. The first was “Birdell,” then “Prince of Dark Corners,” then “Bright Forever” and now “Nance Dude.”
Carden’s relatives are from Macon County and the Cowee area.
Elizabeth Westall has performed the character of Nance Dude many times and has won critical acclaim for doing the monologue. Each time she says it will be her last performance, but she continues to do the play, says Carden.
