But when the angel wants to back out, the producer eludes the reluctant angel, outwits creditors, and manages to produce his play in spite of unexpected obstacles in this classic screwball comedy. It’s a great play that will have an Opening Night filled with Bubbly. On Sunday, there will be a post show Discussion.

Over the course of five years, the film presents Daniel Collins and Quincy Bryant, two young African American men from rural Hale County, Alabama. Collins attends college in a step to change his life while Bryant becomes a father to a spirited young boy in a film that tells their stories through the interstices of their lives. The audience is invited to experience the contradictory nature of the region’s deep culture and a glimpse of the varying ways in which the African American community’s collective image is integrated into America’s own rendering.
